Kudos to PUC Counsel Joe Witmer who recently received the Inaugural Ray Baum Memorial Leadership Award at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners Winter Policy Summit in Washington, D.C. The award honors longtime utility regulatory force Ray Baum who served as a Commissioner at the Oregon Public Utility Commission, and as a staffer on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. Witmer, who serves as counsel to Commission Chairman Gladys Brown Dutrielle also chairs the Mid-Atlantic Conference of Regulatory Utilities Commissioners Telecommunications Staff Committee and the Federal-State Subcommittee of NARUC’s Staff Committee on Telecommunications.
