We are thrilled to announce Christian Damiana’s arrival at the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments as our newest Transportation Planner in 2024.  

Christian joins us after years of advocacy for safer streets for all in the nation’s capital. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies in Communications, Law, Economics, and Government and his Master of Public Administration at American University. Christian previously worked for a Councilmember of the District of Columbia as a Policy Advisor and Communications Director. He also served as Commissioner for ANC 3D07, becoming the youngest elected official in the history of the District of Columbia.  

Christian looks forward to working with NVCOG to create safe streets, accessible transit, and more livable communities across the Naugatuck Valley region. Christian, originally from Berlin, CT, now resides in Hartford, CT’s West End, with his partner and Chow Chow puppy, Calvin. In his free time, Christian enjoys visiting museums, antiquing, and taking advantage of Connecticut’s public green spaces.
