Participants in our Commission meetings last week saw two new faces on the dais. Ann Marie Buerkle and Marietta Robinson were recently confirmed by the Senate as Commissioners and participated in our meetings last week. Commissioner Buerkle is a nurse, lawyer, and former Member of Congress. Commissioner Robinson is a litigator and trial attorney. Both bring important points of view and experiences to the agency.
I am personally excited to have these new Commissioners as colleagues. Although my remaining time at the Commission is limited, it will be so much more meaningful to share this time with Commissioners Buerkle and Robinson.
