‘Public power can and should’ lead climate change solutions, says Radin Award winner Jan Schori
Jan Schori, general manager of Sacramento Municipal Utility District in California, is the 2007 recipient of APPA’s highest award, the Alex Radin Distinguished Service Award. In announcing the award, William Gallagher, chairman of the 2007 Nominations and Awards Committee, praised Schori for her leadership in a wide variety of industry activities, especially those related to environmental issues. The award was presented June 27 during the final general session of APPA’s 2007 National Conference in San Antonio.
“We are fortunate to have the privilege of taking the long view in serving our customers,” Schori said. Solutions to the challenge of climate change “are within our grasp” and “public power can and should lead” initiatives to address the challenge, she said.
