A Day at the Mississippi PSC
Virden Jones is Executive Director, Mike McCool is Director - Water and Sewer, and Brandi Myrick is Director - Electric, Gas and Communications 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. PSC Staff is separate by law from the Public Utilities Staff, as evidenced by the physical division in the Woolfolk building with each on their own floor. Listen in and learn about this wonderful PSC.
PUF: How did you end up at the Commission?
Mike McCool: I started with the Commission in 1979, right out of college. I've been here forty years.
Virden Jones: I was fifty years old when I came to work for the Staff. I've been here twenty-one years. Previously, I had a career in public accounting and was an entrepreneur in a variety of different industries including agriculture, computer and software sales, investments and telecommunications.
