You could say Maida Coleman has come full circle.
The former state senator worked at the public service commission back in the 1980s. There, she was a clerk who certified trucks that traversed across the state.
Flash forward to Thursday, and Coleman is about to return to the agency that regulates public utilities – but on a different level. Gov. Jay Nixon tapped Coleman to serve as a PSC commissioner, effective Aug. 10. She replaces Robert Kenney, a St. Louis attorney who was nearing the end of his six-year stint on the PSC.
