ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Former Maryland Public Service Commissioner Susanne Brogan is now deputy treasurer of public policy in Treasurer Nancy Kopp’s office, creating two vacancies on the five-member PSC.

Kopp introduced Brogan during a meeting of the state’s Capital Debt Affordability Committee on Friday. Brogan started working in the treasurer’s office this week.

Gov. Martin O’Malley tapped Therese Goldsmith, another former PSC commissioner, to be the state’s insurance commissioner in May.

The PSC regulates gas, electric, telephone, water and sewage disposal companies.
