Former Corporation Commissioner Tom Forese spent four years in the regulatory body’s building on Jefferson Street. A little more than a year out of office, he’s returning to his old digs – this time as a lobbyist.

Corporation Commission records show that Forese, who served in the legislature prior to his one term as a utility regulator, registered as a lobbyist for Liberty Utilities on Feb. 25. The Avondale-based company provides regulated water, wastewater, natural gas, electricity and other utility services to more than 750,000 customers nationwide as a subsidiary of Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. 

Its work in Arizona consists of operating water systems across the state. Communities it serves include Avondale, Carefree, Glendale, Goodyear, Scottsdale and Sierra Vista.
