WEST HAVEN, July 28, 2021 — (Pictured): Mayor Nancy R. Rossi swears in John M. Carrano to the Board of Police Commissioners at City Hall on Wednesday, July 28.

Attending the ceremony were Carrano’s wife, Lori Carrano; his mother, Elissa Carrano; his son, John Carrano; and his daughter, Jeana Carrano. They were joined by Police Chief Joseph S. Perno.

Carrano, who lives in West Shore, succeeds Commissioner Keith M. Sweeney, a former West Haven police officer and detective who retired in 1990 after an 11-year career.

Carrano, the son of the late city police Officer Matthew Carrano, served on the Charter Revision Commission in 2018-19. He was on the Board of Education from 2001 to 2005, including a stint as chairman in 2003-05.

During the ceremony, Rossi also administered the oath of office to police commission Vice Chairman Paul E. Butler Jr. for a new term.

Butler, a resident of West Shore who has served on the commission since 2011, was accompanied by his fiancee, Ruth Figueroa; his parents, Paul E. Butler Sr. and Sandra Butler; his son Christopher Butler, a Hartford police officer; and Perno.
