COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The four finalists recommended for a soon-to-be-vacated seat on the Ohio commission that regulates public utilities include a former state budget director and a utility-rate administrator for the commission.
A nominating panel considered 27 applicants for the seat on the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and submitted the finalists Thursday to Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik). He can make his choice from that list or ask for a new one.
The commission will have an open seat because Chairman Todd Snitchler (SNIHCH'-lur) decided not to seek reappointment when his term expires April 10.
The finalists include two from Columbus: utility-rate administrator Patrick Donlon and Tom Johnson, who was budget director under Gov. Bob Taft. Toledo city Councilman Tom Waniewski and Cleveland lawyer Stacey Polk also made the short list.
