Stan Wise says he’s not a candidate to head Cobb EMC

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.

I cannot believe anyone actually paid Mr. Wise such a complement as to put him on some “shortlist” for the CEO position at Cobb EMC. I have argued cases before the Georgia PSC where Mr. Wise is the current chairman. He sleeps through most of any session, makes little if any real contribution to any hearing, and if it is a Georgia Power case he provides oen automatic vote for anything Georgia Power is reqeusting. He might as well be a Georgia Power Employee.
