Commissioner Lauren “Bubba” McDonald’s name is not on the PSC letterhead. Jim Galloway has it all summed up:
Galloway describes it as evidence of a “…rift between Tim Echols, chairman of the state Public Service Commission, and Lauren “Bubba” McDonald, who also sits on the panel.” Commissioner McDonald doesn’t want his name associated with Echols’ name. Some say this is kind of petty, others admire McDonald for taking a “principled” stand. Principled or petty, this is going to make the PSC fun to watch.
