Former state representative and Fort Wayne mayor Win Moses has been selected to serve on a commission that helps select members of the states utility oversight panel.
The longtime utility reform advocates selection to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commissions nominating committee was announced Tuesday, and the appointment is effective immediately.
The committee is charged with creating a list of candidates to fill any vacancy that occurs on the IURC.
The list is forwarded to the governor, who makes the final selection.
Moses was chosen by Indiana House Democratic Leader Scott Pelath of Michigan City.
Throughout his career in public service, Win Moses has made his name as a staunch advocate for the publics best interest in the affairs of government, Pelath said.
There are few people who have carved better reputations in making sure that public utilities live up to their public responsibilities, so I am delighted that Win has chosen to get involved in selecting those people who oversee Indiana utilities.
During his tenure in the Indiana General Assembly, Moses served as the chairman of the House Commerce and Utility Committee. He was twice named Indiana Consumer Advocate of the Year.
Moses was the founding president of the Citizens Action Coalition, a consumer protection group.
