Jersey Central Power and Light, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., named Amy Overman to the role of external affairs consultant to serve as a liaison with elected officials and support local community involvement activities, according to a Wednesday announcement.

Overman will work out of JCP&L’s Washington facility, serving all or parts of Hunterdon and Warren counties.

Overman had a 14-year career in the New Jersey Legislature, including a decade working within the 25th Legislative District. She served as chief of staff to the late Sen. Anthony R. Bucco for nine years and spent one year working under Assemblywoman Aura Dunn (R-Chester). She currently serves as a member of the Roxbury planning board.

“Amy’s experience in municipal volunteerism and engaging with local elected officials will help maintain the strong relationships we have with the towns and communities we serve,” said James Fakult, president of JCP&L. “Her strong background and commitment to these relationships will have lasting benefits for our customers.”

Overman earned her bachelor’s degree in history from Douglass College, Rutgers University.
