TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist is expected this week to receive a slate of seven finalists to replace two incumbent utility regulators spurned by a nominating panel.
Crist spokesman Sterling Ivey on Monday said the governor will have 30 days to make the Public Service Commission appointments once he gets the slate chosen last week by the PSC Nominating Council.
It includes state Sen. Lee Constantine, former commission executive director Mary Bane, former Missouri Public Service Commissioner Connie Murray and former Progress Energy Florida executive James Baumstark.
The others are former Tampa assistant city attorney Julie Brown, Senate staffer Kevin Wiehle and West Palm Beach utilities director Eduardo E. Balbis.
