Gov. Perry Appoints Marty to Public Utility Commission
Gov. Rick Perry has appointed Brandy Marty of Austin to the Public Utility
Commission (PUC), effective immediately. The three-member PUC encourages
competition and customer choice in Texas, and ensures electric and telephone
operations, services and rates are fair and reasonable.
"Brandy is a passionate public servant with a deep knowledge of state
government and the issues critical to Texas' continued success," Gov. Perry
said. "She is well respected by her colleagues and officials across state
government and is known as a capable and effective leader. Her experience and
skills will be a major asset to the PUC as they continue their important work
for our state."
Marty most recently served as chief of staff for the Office of the Governor.
She has also served as the governor's deputy chief of staff, director of the
Budget, Planning and Policy Division, and as deputy legislative director as
House liaison. Marty was also policy director for the governor's 2010 primary
campaign. She has previously served in several capacities working for elected
officials within the House of Representatives.
Marty received a bachelor's degree in government from the University of Texas
and a law degree from St. Mary's University.
