Perry names former chief of staff to PUC

Gov. Rick Perry has appointed a former chief of staff to serve on the three-member Public Utility Commission, the Associated Press reported today.

The governor named Brandy Marty to the commission responsible for regulating electric utilities and telecommunications companies. The commission is also charged with handling consumer complaints and determining rates.

Marty worked her way up in Perry’s office from legislative liaison to running the governor’s office. She previously worked for several legislators in the Texas House.

Mary replaces Rolando Pablos who stepped down earlier this year. Marty attended the University of Texas at Austin and has a law degree from St. Mary’s University.

The PUC has been working to find a way in recent months to deal with potential electricity shortages.
