Mr. Rodecker began his legal career as a public interest lawyer and is a former general counsel to the Public Service Commission. Since then, he has become one of the leading utility lawyers in West Virginia. The Coalition believes that he will be fair and responsive to the needs of citizens, organizations, businesses and utilities while serving on the Commission. Mr. Rodecker has demonstrated his concern for the needs of citizens over the years. For example, he pioneered special protections for seniors when he represented the Council of Senior West Virginians before the PSC in 1976-78. The citizens later won protections from sudden loss of utility service and heat in the winter following Mr. Rodecker’s advocacy for the special rule on winter shut offs by utilities. We feel that he has the necessary knowledge and experience to provide new leadership at the PSC that will effect positive changes to West Virginia's energy future.
