The outgoing chairman of a Vermont House committee that dealt with utility issues has taken a job with Vermont’s second-largest power company.
Representative Robert Dostis, a Waterbury Democrat, is slated to take a management job at Green Mountain Power Corporation beginning in mid-August.
Dostis — chairman of the House Natural Resources and Energy Committee — dealt with several pieces of legislation important to G-M-P during his time as chairman. He announced last month he was not seeking re-election to the Legislature, and resigned his chairmanship this week.
During his time away from the Statehouse, Dostis has served as executive director of the Vermont Campaign to End Childhood Hunger.
