23 Applicants Vie for PUCO Seat

Late last week, persons interested in standing for nomination and appointment to a soon-to-be vacant seat on the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) submitted applications. Commissioner Tom Johnson announced he will not seek reappointment.

The list of applicants includes politicians, lawyers and lobbyists, an academic and some business people. Hannah News Service lists the applicants.

Soon a nominating committee will hone the list of 23 to four names which will be sent to Governor Mike DeWine; he is expected to choose the new commissioner from among those names. 1/24/2019
