Illinois Commerce Commission
Carrie Zalewski is Chair of the Illinois Commerce Commission. Former NARUC President Paul Kjellander is Senior Advisor at Public Utilities Fortnightly.
Commission Chairs and Presidents take on extra administrative work. It's a lot for Commissioners who already are busy. NARUC is helping out by establishing a Commission Chairs' Council to serve the needs of public utility commission leaders.
Enter former NARUC and former Idaho PUC President Paul Kjellander and Illinois Commerce Commission Chair Carrie Zalewski, both who had a hand in shaping the Chairs' Council, which will be led by Chair Zalewski. She is in that leadership role, along with Co-Vice Chairs Jason Stanek of Maryland and Marybel Batjer of California.
PUF wanted to know more about this new and unique resource group for Commission leaders, so PUF's senior advisor, Paul Kjellander, yes, the same mentioned above, was the right person to sit down with Chair Zalewski and find out all about it. Listen in on how this Chairs' Council will help Commission leaders.
PUF's Paul Kjellander: The Commission Chairs Council was created by NARUC last year. You played a key leadership role in making that happen and were a charter member. Why was it needed?
