Posted on December 4, 2009

U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker made the following statements today regarding the president’s decision to nominate William Sansom to another term as a member of the TVA board: Alexander said, “In re-nominating Bill Sansom, President Obama has made an excellent choice that will provide leadership and continuity for TVA.” “President Obama made a strong choice in re-appointing Bill Sansom to the TVA board. Bill brings a valuable business perspective – not politics – to the board, which I believe is exactly what was envisioned when the board structure was modernized and professionalized several years ago. He’s been a stalwart member, and I can’t imagine him not being on the TVA board at this critical time,” Corker said.
