A North County woman has been named to a Site Evaluation Committee group to consider the Northern Pass project.
Rachel Whitaker of Stark will serve as one of two public members on the subcommittee. She fills a spot left vacant by the death of Roger Hawk.
The citizen positions are new, following a legislative restructuring of the SEC in an attempt to streamline it and make it more responsive to the public’s concerns.
Whitaker is an assistant professor of environmental science at the White Mountains Community College. Patty Weathersby, of Rye, is the second public member on the subcommittee.
