BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker has named two new members to the board overseeing the state's health connector.
Mark Gaunya (GON'-yah) and Rina Vertes (REE'-nah VEHR'-tes) took their seats at a board meeting Thursday. They fill two of the positions that opened last month when Baker asked for and received the resignations of four board members.
Gaunya is co-owner and chief information officer at Borislow Insurance. He takes the spot on the board reserved for an insurance broker.
Vertes, president of Marjos Business Consulting, fills the seat set aside for a health insurance actuary.
Among the board members who stepped down was MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, who came under fire for saying it was "the stupidity of the American voter" that led to the passage of the 2010 federal health care law. He has since apologized.
