This fall’s race will decide who represents the PSC Second District that covers all or part of 13 parishes and includes south Baton Rouge, the Lafayette area, Houma and Morgan City. +3 Political Horizons: The election for the most important job you've never heard of deserves more attention The best debut video in what otherwise is a boring election season has to be Public Service … A PSC commissioner's regulatory authority includes utility companies, basically...Read more
