Statement by the New York Power Authority Board of Trustees

Christine Pritchard

February 6, 2009


Judge Anthony Carpinello earlier this week requested the NYPA Board of Trustees to no longer consider him for appointment to the Authority staff.  The Authority has been engaged in a review of the scope and practices of its current Office of Inspector General.  A potential reorganization plan could include a redefined position that would not provide the same professional opportunities that were originally discussed when Judge Carpinello was conditionally appointed in December, 2008.
