• Mike Florio

    Mike Florio, 58, of Oakland, was appointed to the California Public Utilities Commission on January 25, 2011, by Governor Jerry Brown. Prior to this appointment, Commissioner Florio was a senior attorney at The Utility Reform Network, and served in that capacity since 1978. Commissioner Florio is a member of California Conference of Public Utility Counsel. He was also a member of the board of governors of the California Independent System Operator from 1997 to 2005. Commissioner Florio holds a J.D. from New York University School of Law, a M.P.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University and a B.A. from Bowling Green State University.


  • Commissioner Florio appreciates your interest in the issues and policies that the CPUC is considering, and will endeavor to meet with individuals and organizations that have an interest in the CPUC's business to the extent that time permits. However, state law and basic fairness require that in most contested proceedings, equal time be given to all parties, a standard that will often prove impractical to meet on an individualized basis. For this reason, Commissioner Florio will typically use all-party meetings or similar processes to consider issues addressed in formal proceedings. These are expected to be lively, interactive sessions and not a mere succession of prepared speeches.
