J. Paul Morgan, former OUR Director General, has died

J. Paul Morgan, a former Director-General of the Office of Utilities Regulation, died this morning (Sunday).
Mr Morgan had been ailing for sometime.
He also served as President of the National Water Commission.
In response to Mr Morgan's passing, Opposition Spokesman on Science, Technology & Information Julian Robinson has hailed him as the epitome of a public servant of high repute.

In a statement issued Sunday afternoon, Mr. Robinson said Jamaica, the Caribbean and the international community have benefitted tremendously from Mr Morgan's expertise as a professional engineer and regulatory affairs expert.

He noted that Mr Morgan had more 40 years of experience in utilities, engineering, utility regulation, management and consulting and played a pivotal role in the development of the regulatory environment in the telecoms industry in Jamaica.

He said this was during the tumultuous period of liberalisation, which required the establishment of operating standards between the two major providers, Cable & Wireless Jamaica, and Digicel.

Mr. Morgan also served in various capacities at the Jamaica Public Service Company Limited (JPSCo) and the National Water Commission (NWC) during his long career.
