Gov. John Kasich appointed Andre T. Porter as the new director of the state Department of Commerce.
Porter, an attorney, is currently on the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. He’ll take over as commerce director for David Goodman, who was named Development Services Agency director last month.
Porter’s shift opens up a seat on the PUCO, a high-profile and powerful board. Kasich will appoint a new commissioner off a list recommended by the PUCO nominating council.Tweet
