Christie Picks New Leader For Utilities Board

Governor Chris Christie announces the nomination of Robert Hanna, currently the Director of the Division of Law in the Department of Law and Public Safety, to succeed Lee Solomon as the next President of the Board of Public Utilities (BPU) (Governor's Office/Tim Larsen)

Gov. Chris Christie has nominated a top official in the state Department of Law and Public Safety to take over as the next president of the Board of Public Utilities.

Robert Hanna, who now directs the Public Safety department’s law division, would replace Lee Solomon as head of the state authority that regulates utilities.

The governor has in turn nominated Solomon to a judgeship on the Superior Court in Camden County, where he was a judge before assuming his current post.

Both nominations are subject to state Senate confirmation. Hanna is a former longtime assistant U.S. attorney who worked for Christie when he was the U.S. attorney for New Jersey.

Solomon is the former Camden County prosecutor. He was first appointed to the Superior Court in 2005.
