1 The U.S. Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources did nit vote on the nomination of Framingham State Representative Maria Robinson to head the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity yesterday.

In the fifth and final vote, the Committee lost its quorum, which was a political move as Rep. Robinson did not have the necessary votes to move on to the full senate.

In September 2021, President Biden nominated Rep. Robinson to be the next Assistant Secretary of Energy for Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability.

Rep. Robinson, if confirmed by the full U.S. Senate, would head the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability within the United States Department of Energy.

2. Yesterday, Mayor Charlie Sisitsky visited the South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC).

SMOC invited the “Mayor and his staff to tour the facilities and learn about the variety of programs that have served our community during the Pandemic.”
