Mark Johnson is Executive Director, and Amy Andrews is Policy Director, of Washington State's Utilities and Transportation Commission.
There is much going on at Washington's Utilities and Transportation Commission. Including implementation of the shiny new Clean Energy Transformation Act or CETA, requiring that state's electric utilities to transition to one hundred percent clean power by 2045. Signed into law last year, the devil is in the details, as here you hear Commission Staff grapple with the intricacies.
PUF: Mark, you're Executive Director. Talk about your unique role here.
Mark Johnson: I see my role in two distinct categories. One is administrative and operational in nature. I'm responsible for the overall operations, administration, and delegated actions of the Commission.
Then the second area is organizational and leadership development and setting the overall tone and direction for the UTC's work environment and organizational culture. I see my role largely as one of stewardship, responsible for all agency resources and the keeper of the UTC's values of Respect, Professionalism, Integrity, and Accountability.
