Former House Speaker James Amann was hired Friday as a $120,000-per-year senior adviser to his successor, Speaker Christopher Donovan.

In his new position, Amann will help Donovan on both administrative issues and important pieces of legislation. He will also be organizing regional meetings with both business groups and advocates on a variety of legislative topics.

"His skills at negotiation and consensus building will be particularly welcome at a time when we in state government need a cooperative approach to solving the daunting challenges before us," Donovan said.

Amann, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, stepped down last week after serving for four years as speaker during an 18-year legislative career.

Although Amann is a conservative Democrat and Donovan is known as one of the most liberal, pro-union legislators, they formed an alliance on any number of key issues over the past four years.

"Jim and I worked extremely well together to advance an ambitious House Democratic agenda," Donovan said. "I am fortunate that he has agreed to bring his talents and wisdom to my office as we navigate the uncertainty of the economic crisis and address the needs of the people of Connecticut."
