Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff
Grace Power is Chief of Staff, and Christine Sadovy is Deputy Chief of Staff, at the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.
The PUF team was warmly welcomed by those energy stalwarts charged with drafting and implementing Governor Phil Murphy's Energy Master Plan at the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.
It's serious work, but it's fun too, as you will hear Staff attest. And the New Jersey BPU is big, with some two hundred and twenty-five Staff, because in 2003 it established the Office of Clean Energy to help administer its programs. Talk about forward thinking.
PUF: Talk about your background and how you each ended up at the board.
Grace Power: My first job after grad school was at the Board of Public Utilities as the legislative liaison, an area that my office oversees. After four years, I left the Board and went into private practice for a little over a decade, with a focus on administrative and energy law.
When President Fiordaliso was appointed to the BPU, he and I formed a great working relationship based upon our mutual interest in policy, government, and politics. We kept in touch during my time in private practice and when he was appointed to be Board President by Governor Murphy, he asked me to be his Chief of Staff, and I readily accepted.
