INDIANAPOLIS (February 17, 2010) – Governor Mitch Daniels today announced the appointment of former state representative Carolene Mays of Indianapolis to the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission. Mays will fill the vacancy left by Jeffrey Golc whose term expired December 31, 2009.
Mays served in the Indiana House of Representatives from 2002-2008 and sat on the committees for Small Business and Economic Development, Ways and Means and Public Health. She is currently the publisher and president of the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper and the Indiana Minority Business Magazine, and serves on the board of directors for the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, the Marion County Capitol Improvement Board and Peyton Manning’s PeyBack Foundation among others. Mays received her undergraduate degree from Indiana State University.
“In both business and government, Carolene Mays has established a reputation for fairness and firmness, the qualities of a good regulator,” said Daniels. “As a lawmaker she never let blind partisanship prevent her from supporting positive change for Indiana. It’s been my hope since she left the legislature that we could bring her many talents back to public life, and it’s good news to every Hoosier that it’s going to happen.”
Following an application period and interviews, the IURC Nominating Committee, chaired by Mike Sample, recommended three candidates for the governor’s consideration based on education and academic honors received, professional experience and reputation, financial interests in the utility industry, and public service.
Mays’ appointment will be effective March 8. Her term will expire December 31, 2013.
