CEO of AshBritt Expected to Address NJ Senators

AshBritt Environmental CEO Randal Perkins has been invited to address a senate committee on Friday.

His Deerfield, Fla.-based company received a state contract for cleanup just after the storm.

The deal has been criticized because New Jersey did not put the contract out to bid, but rather used the terms of a deal in place with Connecticut.

AshBritt’s rates in some cases were higher than those of other firms. The company has also been criticized because it hired prominent Democrats and Republicans to lobby local officials to use the contract in their communities.
