Argenziano takes helm of Public Service Commission

TALLAHASSEE — Despite outside efforts to derail her appointment as the next Public Service Commission chairwoman, Nancy Argenziano won unanimous approval Tuesday to lead the utility authority for a two-year appointment beginning in January.

"Throughout her adult life, she has answered the call to leadership," said Commission Chairman Matthew Carter, who nominated Argenziano, citing the numerous committees and councils she served on as a state legislator.

Commissioner Lisa Edgar, who previously served as chairman, seconded the motion to nominate Argenziano, saying she was "pleased to have the opportunity to work with you during these next few years."

Argenziano, who served in the Legislature from 1996 until Gov. Charlie Crist appointed her to the PSC in 2007, accepted the nomination, saying she considers it an administrative job but a tough one that requires juggling the schedules of five commissioners and the utilities. "What I do expect is that each one of you remember you are independent commissioners and want to keep it that way."
