The Public Service Enterprise Group, the state’s largest provider of electricity, has hired the top prosecutor for Union County for the past four years, Grace Park, as a litigator and general counsel.
Gov. Chris Christie’s office announced that First Assistant Union County Prosecutor Thomas Isenhour has been appointed to replace her. Isenhour has been with the Union County Prosecutor’s office since 1984.
“As the chief law enforcement officer in Union County, she oversaw an office of approximately 250 employees and an approximately $22 million annual budget, coordinating the law enforcement efforts of more than 1,500 police officers in 21 municipal police departments, the Union County Sheriff’s Office and the Union County Police Department,” according to a press release from her office.
Park’s departure coincides with the opening of the Union County Family Justice Center, a project aimed at helping victims of domestic violence that she fostered through collaboration with numerous county organizations, the release stated. Prior to joining the Prosecutor’s Office, Park worked for the civil litigation team of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.
Spokespeople at PSEG did not immediately return calls. The utility often faces lawsuits. Earlier this year, it was sued by a group of homeowners in Camden county court, who allege that the utility and its private electricity supplier, Stream Energy, are not applying energy credits to residents with solar panels on their roofs.
