A Day at the Mississippi PSC
Cecil Brown is a commissioner at the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
The PUF team received a warm welcome in the Magnolia State as we had made our way to Jackson. The Mississippi Public Service Commission is housed near the state Capitol in the beautiful art deco E.T. Woolfolk state office building. Those we were fortunate to engage with are excited about their jobs.
PUF: When were you first elected and what does being elected mean for your work here?
Commissioner Brown: I was elected in 2015 to begin in 2016. I don't know that it's a lot different than being appointed, other than we probably feel closer to our constituents.
We've got a district area that we cover and the way the three of us work, but technically it's not in the law, is we manage our own districts. I'm in the central district. We work together on issues where we need to, but we spend most of our time within our home districts. I've got twenty-two counties.
