Governor Mike Pence named two women, including one from Johnson County, to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC).
Pence named Angela Weber, of Franklin, to the post on Friday. He also appointed Carol Stephan, of Indianapolis. Stephan's appointment will be effective March 3, while Weber's appointment will go into effect on March 10.
"As evidenced by her service to both her country and state, Angela Weber has demonstrated time and again her dedication and passion for serving Hoosiers," said Governor Pence. "Her past experience will serve her well as a member of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and I am grateful for her willingness to serve."
According to information released by the state, Weber currently works for Ice Miller LLP. Prior to this role, Weber served in a variety of roles including as Staff Attorney in the Indiana Department of Education, Administrative Law Judge for the IURC, and Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office. From 1996 to 2000, she served as a Russian Linguist/Voice-Intercept Operator for the United States Army. State officials add that Weber is a graduate of Indiana University and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.
The appointment of both women came about as the result of openings that developed on the IURC. On February 11, the IURC Nominating Committee put forth six candidates to fill vacancies created by the resignations of Commissioners Kari Bennett and Larry Landis.
Gov. Pence said the nominating committee did fine work. "I extend my utmost appreciation to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission Nominating Committee for their diligence, integrity and commitment to public transparency throughout this process," said Pence.
