HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Gov. Tom Wolf is elevating a Harrisburg lawyer to serve as the new chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

The governor appointed Gladys Brown on Thursday to head the five-member regulatory panel.

Wolf, a Democrat, says he’ll work with Brown to ensure that there’s stable balance between the interests of utilities and consumers.

She holds a law degree from the University of Pittsburgh.

Brown, who has served on the commission since 2013, succeeds Robert Powelson as chairman. He’ll remain on the commission.
