Former Hartford Mayor Pedro E. Segarra could be the state's newest worker's compensation commissioner.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Wednesday nominated Segarra to a commissioner position vacated by Robert D'Andrea, who was recently confirmed as a Superior Court Judge.

Since his time as mayor, Segarra, an attorney, has been a lawyer at Harford's Shimkus, Murphy and Rosenberger.

If confirmed, his new position would be a full-time role for a term of five years. He would be one of 16 commissioners within the state's workers' compensation system.

Segarra was a Hartford city councilor from 2006 to 2010 and mayor from 2010 to 2016. He was defeated in the Sept. 2015 primary by fellow Democrat Luke Bronin, who is now serving his third year in office.

Segarra, who earned his law degree from UConn, was previously corporation counsel for Hartford in the 1990s.
