DeAngelo: BPU Nominations will Provide Varied Experience to Utility Oversight Agency

Congratulates Colleague Assemblyman Chivukula on Appointment to BPU

(TRENTON) – Assemblyman Wayne P. DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex), vice chairman of the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee, on Thursday congratulated Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula; Rick Mroz and Joseph Fiordaliso upon their nominations to the state Board of Public Utilities (BPU):

“These three gentlemen provide a vast array of experience in professional and public service that will offer a balance and depth of knowledge to the Board of Public Utilities. As we saw during and after Superstorm Sandy, it’s critical that our state’s telecommunications and utility services are able to withstand any test that they may face. These commissioners also will need to continue to move our state forward in clean energy at reasonable rates for consumers.
“I particularly wish to congratulate my colleague, Chairman Upendra Chivukula, upon his appointment to the board. Since joining the Legislature, I have had the honor of serving alongside him as vice-chairman of the Assembly Telecommunications and Utilities Committee. I have seen first-hand his deliberative and thoughtful investigation of the issues affecting the delivery of utility services in our state. His professional experience and vast efforts in the Legislature will undoubtedly benefit the BPU and the consumers in our state.”
