Gov. Chris Christie has nominated the wife of his first Board of Public Utilities president to join the agency as a commissioner making $125,000 a year.

Dianne Solomon’s nomination must be approved by the state Senate.

The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/YR6in9) reports the 58-year-old Haddonfield resident is a tennis official. Her husband, Lee Solomon, is a Camden County state Superior Court judge. He was Christie’s first BPU president in 2010 and 2011.

The Sierra Club’s Jeff Tittel says he’s “deeply troubled” that the governor would nominate someone with no background or experience in energy policy or utility law to the board, especially when New Jersey is trying to improve its utility infrastructure after Superstorm Sandy.

The governor’s office didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to a request for her background or education.
