Letter: PUCO chairman is like the fox guarding the henhouse

COLUMBUS -- "I have been watching the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio appointments for quite some time and threw up my hands in disbelief at the appointment of Sam Randazzo as chairman in February 2019. He is a veteran lawyer and lobbyist on behalf of heavy industry.

For a tutorial on how some politicians operate, see “How a longtime critic of clean energy became Ohio’s top utility regulator” by John Funk on the Energy News Network. As it turns out, the Householder network of corruption involving FirstEnergy has ties to Randazzo’s company, Sustainability Funding Alliance of Ohio.

Citizens such as the Ohio Consumers Power Alliance are now asking for Gov. Mike DeWine to remove him from the PUCO."
