Join us on Wednesday, May 24, for the Public Utilities Law Section's 2016-17 Annual Meeting and Lunch with the Commissioners, including a presentation by the State of Minnesota’s most-recently appointed Public Utilities Commissioner, Katie Sieben. 

Katie Sieben was appointed to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission by Governor Mark Dayton, effective January 23, 2017. Commissioner Sieben is a member of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) where she serves on the NARUC Committee on Gas and the NARUC committee on Consumer Affairs. She is also a member of the Mid-America Regulatory Conference.
Commissioner Sieben was first elected to the Minnesota State Senate in 2006, representing District 54, which includes portions of southern Washington and Dakota counties.
While in the Senate, Sieben served on the Energy and Environment, Capital Investment, Rules, and Transportation committees and chaired the Elections subcommittee. Sieben was a consistent champion of clean air and water, sponsoring laws to monitor and improve the quality of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers. Sieben’s reputation for being a fair and effective legislator led to her being elected by her caucus to serve as the Assistant Majority Leader in the Minnesota Senate in 2012.
Commissioner Sieben has served as a community faculty member and adjunct professor at Metropolitan State University’s Masters in Advocacy and Public Leadership Program. Previously, she was elected to two terms in the Minnesota House of Representatives.
Commissioner Sieben earned her B.A. from Colorado College, was a Policy Fellow at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota, and earned a Master degree in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School. Sieben lives with her husband, Josh Straka, and three children in Cottage Grove.

Please join us for lunch beginning at Noon, followed by the program from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
