State Rep. Cecil Brown, who currently represents House District 66, is running for the central district post. He is originally from Meridian.
Brown has served in the state legislature for the past 16 years, but decided to run for the PSC after his legislative district was redrawn.
Brown gave his opinion on how Mississippi Power is trying to fund the Kemper County coal plant project.
“Mississippi Power Company, in their design and implementation of their plan, made some serious mistakes that have resulted in substantial cost overruns,” said Brown. “I don’t think the ratepayers, that is homeowners, small business, and large businesses and taxpayers, should have to pay for the mistakes that Mississippi Power Company made.”
