Environmental group applauds BPU pick

The New Jersey Environmental Federation (NJEF) says that Superior Court Judge Lee Solomon, Gov. Christopher Christie’s pick to head the state Board of Public Utilities, was an environmental ally when he served as an Assemblyman and Camden County Freeholder.

“His strong opposition to proposed garbage incinerators in Camden and Pennsauken, the latter of which was stopped, because of their negative environmental and economic impacts bodes well for today,” said Sharon Finlayson, the NJEF chair. “Lee Solomon has the legal, environmental, personal, and political background to ensure a cleaner, greener 21st century. We need clean solutions for tomorrow not dirty ideas from the past. That’s Governor Christie’s agenda. That’s why we endorsed him and we look forward to working again with Lee to implement that agenda.”
