PSC Resignations

September 9th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Two Public Service Commission staff members have resigned under pressure.

One attended a party at the home of a utility executive, which is against commission rules. The other provided his Blackberry pin number to utility executives. The pin number allows people to communicate in real time without a record. Two other staffers who also provided their bosses PIN numbers to executives have been suspended. PSC Spokesperson Cynthia Muir says it is uncertain if or when they will return to work.

Its pending further review. It is being reviewed,” Muir said. “I dont really know how long that will take or what that will entail.

So they could either be back on the job or without a job?

Thats how I understand it,” she said.

PSC Commissioner Nancy Argenziano, who has only been on the job a year and a half, is also asking for a grand jury investigation of the PSC and its staff contending they are too cozy with the utilities they regulate. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the States Attorney are also looking into the commission and its practices.
