A nominating council has sent four names to Gov. Rick Scott to consider for an appointment to the Florida Public Service Commission, according to a list posted Wednesday on the council’s website, reports the News Service of Florida. The nominees include current PSC member Lisa Edgar, whose expiring term has created the opening on the utility-regulating panel. Another nominee for the $130,000-a-year job is Ken Littlefield, who served in the state House from 1999 to 2006 and also had a brief appointment to the PSC in January 2007. The other nominees are Donald Polmann, director of science and engineering for Tampa Bay Water, and Luz Weinberg, an Aventura city commissioner and director of communications for Bouygues Civil Works Florida. Edgar’s current term ends Jan. 1.
