Outgoing State Senator will resign before taking position Nov. 15
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today announced the appointment of state Senator Brooks McCabe, D-Kanawha, to the West Virginia Public Service Commission (PSC), effective Nov. 15, 2014.
McCabe will fill the vacancy created by the September resignation of Commissioner Ryan Palmer.
“I’m grateful for Commissioner Palmer’s service, and I wish him the best in his role with the Federal Communications Commission,” Governor Tomblin said. “Brooks McCabe’s professional background and years of dedicated service as a member of the West Virginia Legislature make him both experienced and knowledgeable on a variety of issues that come before our state’s PSC. I look forward to the contributions he will make.”
A graduate of the University of Vermont and West Virginia University, McCabe began his career in the commercial and investment real estate industry. He has remained an active member of this community for more than thirty years and currently serves as Managing Member and Broker of West Virginia Commercial LLC and General Partner of McCabe Land Company LP.
During his time as a member of the West Virginia State Senate, McCabe focused on economic growth and development opportunities. He has served on the Senate Committees on Finance, Economic Development, Pensions, Banking and Insurance and Government Organization.
McCabe, who did not run for re-election this year, will resign his Senate seat prior to joining the PSC.
