Andy Raichle Sworn In as a Commissioner of the NJ State Tidelands Resource Council
Florham Park, NJ — Andy Raichle, P.E., Vice President, Matrix New World Engineering (Matrix), was recently sworn in as a Commissioner of the New Jersey State Tidelands Resource Council.
Raichle’s three decades of international experience in delivering waterfront development and maritime projects awarded him a nomination from Governor Murphy and confirmed by the State Legislature. Raichle takes on the responsibility of providing stewardship for the State’s valuable tidelands resources, which consist of lands currently or formerly flowed by the tide of a natural waterbody.
These state-owned tidelands are held in trust for the people of the State – a right intimately connected to the Public Trust Doctrine that has persisted for centuries for the benefit of the public. Therefore, fees generated from the Council’s license and sale of tidelands benefit and support public schools.
Raichle is honored to serve on the Council on behalf of the people of New Jersey.
According to Jayne Warne, PE, President, “We are proud Governor Murphy nominated Andy Raichle and the State Legislature confirmed him as a Commissioner. Andy’s extensive background and expertise in waterfront development and maritime projects makes him an unparalleled choice for this position. The vital stewardship of our waters and waterways is critical for generations to come.”
