PUCO Nominating Council Makes Recommendations to Governor

The PUCO Nominating Council met this week to interview nine candidates for a commissioner vacancy on the commission.

The nine candidates were selected from a field of twenty-three applicants.

Following the interviews, the council advanced four finalists: Gene Krebs, a former state legislator and former board chair of the Office of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel (OCC); Dennis Deters, a court of appeals judge in Cincinnati; Bryce McKenney, an attorney at the OCC; and Sam Randazzo, a lobbyist for the IEU-Ohio.

Governor DeWine will consider the slate of four to appoint a new commissioner to a five-year term. 1/31/2019
