INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission has selected three nominees to fill the vacancy on the commission. The person chosen by Governor Mike Pence will succeed Carolene Mays-Medley, who was appointed executive director of the White River State Park Development Commission in April.

Pence's selection will serve the remainder of Mays-Medley's term, which expires on December 31, 2017. The three nominees are Sarah Freeman, Jeffrey Golc and Timothy Jeffers.

"I thank the IURC Nominating Committee for its careful and thorough evaluation of candidates to serve as commissioner at the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission," said Pence. "I commend the members of the Committee for their dedication, and I commit to conducting an equally thorough evaluation of the three nominees as I determine the appointment for the vacant position at the Commission."

Freeman is a senior attorney with the Indiana Legislative Services Agency. Golc previous served as a commissioner with the IURC from 2007 to 2010 and is also a former deputy commissioner for the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. Jeffers currently serves as the director of business development and community relations with Indianapolis-based CSO Architects.
