Leonard Bentz defends Kemper decision as he prepares to leave PSC

Public Service Commissioner Leonard Bentz hasn’t set a date to resign and become executive director of the South Mississippi Planning and Development District. But the Republican probably won’t be a commissioner by the time the state’s utility regulators meet again on Sept. 10.

“Probably so,” he said when asked if Tuesday’s PSC meeting was his last. “Not 100 percent, but I would say probably so.”
