From a press release issued by Governor Jim Doyle:

MADISON – Governor Jim Doyle today announced that Chairperson Dan Ebert is leaving the Public Service Commission, effective May 23, 2008. The Governor also announced that Eric Callisto, current Executive Assistant at the Public Service Commission, has been appointed to succeed Ebert as Chairperson. He will begin serving as Chairperson effective May 27, 2008.

“Eric Callisto brings incredible knowledge and insight to this position,” Governor Doyle said. “His background in environmental law and his leadership on a variety of important topics at the Commission for the last two years will continue to serve Wisconsin citizens well during his tenure as Chairperson.”

“It is an honor to serve the state of Wisconsin, which has a long history of leading the nation in utility regulation and energy conservation,” Callisto, 44, said. “Protecting our environment and the consumer while maintaining a reliable utility service will remain an important focus of the Public Service Commission and the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin continues to be presented with opportunities and challenges in energy, telecommunications, and water utility regulation, and I look forward to addressing them with Commissioners Meyer, Azar, and the strong staff at the PSC. I thank Governor Doyle for giving me this opportunity, and I applaud him for his ongoing efforts to achieve energy independence.”

Governor Doyle thanked Chairperson Ebert for his strong leadership and outstanding service as Chairperson of the Public Service Commission.
