Tallahassee — Fresh off a reappointment to the Florida Public Service Commission, Andrew Fay was elected Tuesday to serve a two-year term as chairman of the utility regulatory panel.
Fay will succeed Chairman Gary Clark in January.
Former Gov. Rick Scott appointed Fay to the commission in 2018, and Gov. Ron DeSantis in September reappointed him to a four-year term that will start in January.
Before joining the commission, Fay was an assistant attorney general and special counsel to former Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Other commissioners praised Fay before they unanimously approved him as the next chairman.
“Andrew’s done a phenomenal job since he has been here,” said Commissioner Art Graham, the longest-serving member of the panel. Clark will remain on the five-member commission after stepping down as chairman.
