Do the Right Thing – “This really resonates with me because that’s who I am and the reputation I want to have. It may not always be clear, it may be hard, but personal and professional integrity is important. Otherwise, it’s a slippery slope. Doing the right thing creates the basis for trust. I sincerely appreciate that about the PECO culture and my colleagues; we are all working to do the right thing.”
