This week, CPUC President Mike Picker presided over his last Commission meeting.
In response to well wishes and compliments from fellow Commissioners for his six years of work at the CPUC, Picker said he does not believe in legacies:
“I’m not a judge of what’s right or wrong, but I hope everyone here feels more dignity, pride and a strong sense of purpose.”
Commissioner Martha Guzman Aceves:
“Had Mike Picker not been in this world, we would not have reached our renewable goals.”
Picker is also credited with making the CPUC more efficient and transparent. As previously reported, Picker will be succeeded by Marybel Batjer.
