Process Starts to Pick Utility Regulators

With the terms of commissioners Julie Brown and Gary Clark scheduled to expire in January, the state is starting a months-long process to fill two seats on the Florida Public Service Commission. The Florida Public Service Commission Nominating Council announced Monday that it has started accepting applications for the $132,036-a-year utility regulatory posts, with an application deadline of June 12.

After that, the nominating council will whittle the list of applicants and recommend candidates to Gov. Rick Scott. Brown has served on the five-member commission since January 2011, while Clark was appointed last year to fill an unexpired term of Jimmy Patronis, who became state chief financial officer.

Along with choosing Clark, Scott’s most-recent picks for the PSC have been to reappoint veteran Commissioner Art Graham and appoint Andrew Fay, who had worked for Attorney General Pam Bondi. The fifth commissioner is Donald Polmann, whose term began in January 2017.
