Until it folded in 2002, Frank Maisano worked for the Global Climate Coalition, an industry front group fighting against reforms to slow down and prevent industry pollution contributing to global climate change. He was a member of the Potomac Communications Group, whose other clients include Con Edison, the Edison Electric Institute, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He was then media strategist and spokesman for the Electric Reliability Coordinating Council (ERCC), an anti-EPA lobby group for coal-burning utilities. He has also apparently worked for MTBE manufacturers. In April, 2006, E magazine interviewed Maisano, reporting that he is now working with Bracewell and Giuliani, whose clients have included the ERCC along with energy giants Enron, Chevron-Texaco, Pacific Gas & Electric, Dynegy, and Southern Company. Since 2005, Maisano, representing Bracewell and Giuliani, has provided PR work for industrial wind energy developers in the mid-Atlantic states, particularly those targeting the Allegheny Front in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.
