Connaugton nominated for Maritime Commissioner

Kristen Mack

Looks like Sean T. Connaughton won't be returning to elected office anytime soon.

President Bush announced today that he intends to nominate Connaughton to be Commissioner of the Federal Maritime Commission for the remainder of a five-year term, through June 2012.

Connaughton has served as Administrator of the Maritime Administration at the Department of Transportation for the last two years.

Connaughton, who resigned as Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors to accept the Bush administration appointment, lost a bid to be the GOP candidate for lieutenant governor in 2005.

There has long been talk he would run for statewide office again when the Bush administration ended, but he's apparently put those plans on hold. . . for now.
