Lynn Posey won't seek re-election to PSC

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Lynn Posey says he won't seek a third term as the central district member of the Mississippi Public Service Commission. He was elected to the three-person utility regulation board in 2007 and 2011. The 59-year-old from Union Church served 20 years in the state Senate, chairing the Wildlife Committee 16 years.

He switched from Democrat to Republican in December 2010.

Mississippi voters in 2015 will elect eight statewide officials and district posts such as the PSC and the Transportation Commission, plus all 122 seats in the state House and all 52 in the state Senate. Candidates' qualifying deadline is Feb. 27.

In a statement Tuesday, Posey thanked central district residents for letting him serve.

Democratic state Rep. Cecil Brown of Jackson is running for the central district PSC seat.
