At their Commission Business Meeting on June 3rd, the Commissioners of the PSC voted to nominate a Chair and Vice Chair, to take effect on July 1st, 2020.
Commissioner Whitfield opened the proceedings with his nomination of Commissioner Justin T. Williams for Chairman, noting his leadership skills and his experience with South Carolina law. Commissioner Tom Ervin seconded the nomination, and Commissioner Williams was unanimously elected to serve as Chairman. Commissioner Williams is currently on active duty in Iraq with the U.S. military; in his temporary absence, Chairman Randall will serve as Interim Chair.
Commissioner Ervin then nominated Commissioner Florence P. Belser to serve a new term as Vice Chair, emphasizing her institutional knowledge–including her role as a staff attorney for the Commission–and her familiarity with the operation of the agency. Commissioner Belser was unanimously elected to serve.
We’re proud to have the leadership and experience of Chairman Williams and of Vice Chair Belser as they guide the agency into the future, and we look forward to their tenure as Chair and Vice Chair.
