BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida State Rep. Tom Goodson of Brevard County is among 18 applicants for three openings on the state’s Public Service Commission, according to a list released Tuesday.
The commission regulates the state’s investor-owned utilities and a commissioner’s pay is $131,036 per year.
Tuesday was the deadline to apply for the seats now held by Commissioners Art Graham and Ronald Brisé, which are up at the end of the year.
Both Graham and Brisé, who were last reappointed by Gov. Rick Scott in 2013, have reapplied for their positions.
The application deadline for the third Public Service Commission opening, created when Commissioner Jimmy Patronis stepped down to replace Jeff Atwater as the state’s CFO, is July 28.
In addition to Goodson, applicants so far include former Public Service Commission member and former state Rep. Kenneth Littlefield, a Pasco County Republican; and Associate Public Counsel Erik Sayler.
Commissioners are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate.
