Presley, Adams debate details of coal project consumer impact
Of the three incumbents RUNNING for re-election to the Mississippi Public Service Commission — which regulates public electric, gas, telecommunications, water and sewer utilities — only one faces a serious challenger.
Northern District Commissioner and Democrat Brandon Presley is opposed by Republican Boyce Adams. Both have raised significant campaign funds — Presley with $150,000 and Adams with $142,000. Both candidates view Mississippi Power Company’s multi-billion dollar clean coal plant under construction in Kemper County as a central issue of the race.
