Powelson renominated to Pa. utility commission
Governor Corbett on Tuesday nominated Public Utility Chairman Robert F. Powelson of Kennett Square for another five-year term.
Powelson, a Republican who previously served as the president of the Chester County Chamber of Business and Industry, was appointed by former Gov. Rendell in 2008 for an unfinished PUC term and again in 2009 for a full term. Corbett named him chairman in 2011. His current term expires in April. His reappointment requires Senate approval.
The PUC is comprised of five full-time members who serve staggered terms. No more than three can be from one political party. - Andrew Maykuth
