Beebe Appoints New ADEQ Director, Public Service Commissioner

JANUARY 30, 2007 - Posted at 4:13 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Beebe today appointed North Little Rock City Attorney Paul Suskie as a member of the Arkansas Public Service Commission.

Suskie, who lost to Dustin McDaniel in last year's attorney general's race, replaces commissioner Randy Bynum, who term expired this year.

Suskie has served as city attorney in North Little Rock since 2000.  Suskie also is a major in the Arkansas Army National Guard, and has served a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Beebe also named a new director for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality.

Teresa Marks will replace Marcus Devine as head of the environmental agency.  Beebe's office said yesterday that Devine would not continue on as agency director.

Marks worked as deputy attorney general for public protection while Beebe served as attorney general.  In 2003, Marks helped negotiate an agreement between Arkansas, Oklahoma and the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce phosphorus levels in waterways in northwest Arkansas.
