Stan Wise, chairman of the state Public Service Commission, just killed talk that he was leaving. His statement, via my AJC colleague Kristi Swartz:
“In recent days there has been much speculation over my possible candidacy for Chief Executive Officer of Cobb EMC. I am not a candidate for CEO of Cobb EMC. The next CEO faces tremendous challenges, but I am convinced the organization’s leadership and dedicated employees are capable of restoring public confidence.”
The Marietta Daily Journal reported last week that Wise was on a “short list” of candidates to replace EMC head Dwight Brown, who has been re-indicted on racketeering charges.
