Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown today filled two positions on the powerful California Public Utilities Commission, appointing consumer advocate Mike Florio and law professor Catherine Sandoval to the regulatory board.

Florio, 58, has been a lawyer for The Utility Reform Network, a consumer advocacy group. He was previously a member of the board of governors of the California Independent System Operator.

Sandoval, 50, has been an associate professor at Santa Clara University School of Law since 2004.

Like Brown, both Florio and Sandoval are Democrats. They are each to be paid $128,109 a year.

Brown also announced two appointments to the California Energy Commission. Robert Weisenmiller, 62, a decline-to-state voter, was appointed to the commission by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last year. Carla Peterman, 32, a Democrat, is a PhD candidate at University of California, Berkeley. Both are to be paid $128,109 a year.

Brown last week appointed Public Utilities Commission member Nancy Ryan deputy executive director of the agency, leaving one more spot on the commission for him to fill.
