WASHINGTON, May 8, 2019 – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after meeting with William (Bill) B. Kilbride of Chattanooga, President Trump’s nominee to serve on the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors:

“Bill is an accomplished businessman and has provided strong leadership to his community as CEO of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce. Senator Blackburn and I recommended him to the president, and after talking with him today, I have no doubt he understands that TVA’s mission is to continue to provide cheap, clean and reliable electricity throughout the Tennessee Valley. His leadership will be a valuable asset to the TVA Board of Directors, and I look forward to his confirmation by the Senate.”
