Judge Nicandri reappointed to NYPA Board of Trustees


MASSENA - Retired St. Lawrence County Court Judge Eugene L. Nicandri has been reappointed to another term on the New York Power Authority Board of Trustees.

Judge Nicandri was reappointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and that appointment was confirmed by the New York State Senate.

A statement issued by NYPA Chairman John R. Koelmel and NYPA President and CEO Gil C. Quiniones had high praise for Judge Nicandri’s work on the board.

“The confirmation last week by the New York State Senate of Governor Cuomo’s reappointment of Judge Nicandri to another term on the New York Power Authority [NYPA] Board of Trustees is good news for New York state and a testament to his knowledge, experience and good judgment on wide-ranging energy matters that NYPA contributes to everyday,” according to the statement.

“During his nearly five years as a trustee, Judge Nicandri has been at the center of key NYPA decision making. This has included major endeavors under Governor Cuomo to modernize and upgrade the state’s electricity infrastructure, protect and create jobs through allocations of lower cost electricity to businesses and other enterprises, and bring about investments in energy efficiency and clean energy technologies,” according to the release.

“Judge Nicandri has a strong connection with the New York Power Authority, as a long-time resident of Massena, the home of our St. Lawrence-FDR Hydroelectric Power Plant, whose low-cost power is indispensable to Alcoa aluminum production in Northern New York and economic development in the region,” according to the statement.

“The pride that Judge Nicandri takes in the contributions of NYPA’s statewide work force has been one of the hallmarks of his tenure on the board. His continued service as a NYPA trustee is a gratifying development for the Power Authority’s continued benefits to New York state.”
