Roisman, who has a private law practice, will succeed outgoing PSB Chairman James Volz, who was first appointed by former Republican Gov. James Douglas in 2005 and reappointed by former Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin in 2011. Roisman will assume the chairmanship on June 12. “I think this is a unique opportunity because of a combination of factors — the quality of the other two commissioners, the staff of the public service board, which is just an outstanding group of people, the citizens … and of course, all the utilities, who are, in my experience in dealing with utilities, are a very special group of companies who are trying to do the right thing for Vermont,” Roisman said in a telephone interview Thursday. “That combination makes for just a tremendous opportunity to do good and it’s something I’m really looking forward to.”
