Harold D. Williams

Occupation

Member, Public Service Commission

In the news

Williams complained last week of being excluded from a private meeting between Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s top aides and other PSC commissioners. The Ehrlich administration and the PSC insisted the State House meeting last week was purely impromptu. But black lawmakers held a news conference to complain that Williams -- the sole Democratic appointee and only black commissioner -- was not invited. The meeting came in the midst of what has become the General Assembly's most pressing issue: this summer's estimated 72 percent electricity rate increase for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customers.

Career highlights

He worked at BGE for nearly 20 years, most recently as a director of corporate procurement. He was appointed to the PSC in October 2002 by then-Gov. Parris N. Glendening.

Personal

He is married and has three adult children.

Philosophy

"I'm very concerned about the citizens of Maryland, particularly the low-income and fixed-income retirees."
