• Coalition Letter Supporting Honorable Mark Menezes’s Nomination to Serve as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Energy

May 20, 2020

Dear Chairwoman Murkowski and Ranking Member Manchin: We write to express our strong support for Honorable Mark Menezes’s nomination to serve as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Energy and urge your support for his confirmation.

We believe Mr. Menezes’s integrity, experience and managerial expertise, demonstrated during his many years of senior leadership positions in the public and private sectors, including Berkshire Hathaway Energy, American Electric Power and Chief Counsel for Energy and Environment for the United States House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, uniquely prepare him for this important role. Mr. Menezes’s deep qualifications and broad support is also validated by his previous U.S. Senate confirmation for Under Secretary of the Department of Energy in November 2017.
