On March 7, 2012, the Executive Council confirmed Michael Harrington as Public Utilities Commissioner on a 4-1 vote. Councilor Ray Burton opposed the confirmation because too many questions regarding Harrington's pension went unanswered. Harrington was formerly employed by PSNH.
Late this afternoon, Friday, March 30, PUC General Counsel Anne Ross filed an affidavit disclosing information that newly appointed Commissioner Michael Harrington refused to provide during his confirmation hearings.
Based on this disclosure, Responsible Energy Action LLC (REAL) is calling for Commissioner Harrington to step down from the PUC.
REAL's call includes Attorney Ross's affidavit and supporting documents.
