POWER AUTHORITY TRUSTEES SALUTE DEPARTING MEMBER WILLIAM COTTER

 POWER AUTHORITY TRUSTEES SALUTE DEPARTING MEMBER WILLIAM COTTER
 MASSENA, N.Y., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Power Authority Chairman Richard M. Flynn Tuesday praised former Power Authority Trustee William D. Cotter as a valued and valuable member of the board.
 "We will miss Bill Cotter and his dedication to the Power Authority," said Flynn. "He was especially concerned with energy conservation efforts and was diligent in reminding us how important they are in meeting our responsibilities to New York's residents."
 Cotter recently resigned as a trustee and also as New York State Commissioner of Energy and chairman of the state Energy Research and Development Authority to accept Gov. Mario M. Cuomo's appointment as a member of the state Public Service Commission (PSC). He had been a Power Authority trustee since April 1989.
 A resolution adopted by Power Authority trustees in a meeting at the St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project here stated that Cotter's "extensive expertise in energy matters will continue to benefit New Yorkers" in his new post on the PSC.
 Before entering government service in 1983, Cotter was editor of the Syracuse Herald-Journal and the Sunday Herald-American. Before that, he served as an editor and reporter at a number of Newhouse Newspaper Group newspapers, including the Long Island Journal, the Nassau Review-Star, the Long Island Press and the Jersey Journal in Jersey City, N.J.
 He is a former president and board member of the New York State Society of Newspaper Editors and was vice president of the New York State Associated Press Association in 1982.
 The trustees' resolution declared that Cotter's "fellow trustees wish him great success in his new position of serving the people of New York and publicly affirm their deep regret at the loss of his valued association; record formally their profound gratitude and appreciation to him for his judgment, dedication and counsel; and assure him that they will continue to cherish his friendship in the years ahead."
 Cotter, a resident of Clifton Park in Saratoga County, is a graduate of Fordham University and later studied at St. John's University and Syracuse University.
 During World War II he served as a coding and intelligence officer on the staff of Adm. William F. Halsey in the South Pacific.
 Cotter is a former chairman of the Onondaga County Energy Committee, which was created by the County Legislature and the City of Syracuse to deal with energy matters in the region.
