On May 7, 2015, Governor Wolf appointed Gladys M. Brown Chairman of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. Brown was sworn in as a Pennsylvania Public Utility Commissioner on Oct. 2, 2013, one day after receiving unanimous approval from the Pennsylvania Senate. Commissioner Brown was nominated for the position by Gov. Tom Corbett on June 13, 2013. Her term expires April 1, 2018.
During her confirmation hearing, Chairman Brown pledged to use the same fair and balanced approach in dealing with PUC issues that she used in her more than 22 years as an aide in the Pennsylvania Senate. She highlighted that one of her goals on the Commission is to increase efforts to educate consumers.
Since 1991, Chairman Brown served as counsel to the Senate Democratic Leader where she worked on many of the major utility issues that have been considered by the General Assembly in the last two decades including all of the major deregulation bills for telecommunications, electricity and natural gas; Act 201 of 2004, which added Chapter 14 to the Public Utility Code and changed the handling of consumer terminations and reconnections; Act 129 of 2008, which addressed energy efficiency and procurement; and Act 11 of 2012, which expanded use of the distribution system improvement charge.
Prior to joining the Senate, Chairman Brown served as an assistant counsel for the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs in the Pennsylvania Department of State and as a clerk for the Honorable Paul A. Simmons, Judge for the U.S. District Court, Western District of Pennsylvania.
