Susan Duffy is a Commissioner at the Kansas Corporation Commission.
At the Kansas Corporation Commission, the PUF team found a nation-leading trucking safety program, one of two states that regulate utilities and the oil and gas industry through the same agency, a Chair chosen to sit on the Federal-State Task Force on Electric Transmission, and too much to name here. Kansas is grappling with a multitude of issues. The Kansas Commissioners and Staff share their thoughts here.
PUF's Lori Burkhart: How did your background lead you to the Commission?
Commissioner Susan Duffy: I was completing my public administration master's degree and received a Kansas Governor's fellowship providing me the opportunity to work in several executive state agencies over the course of a year. At the time, I had no idea I would begin a thirty-year career of public service in state government.
I served as an analyst in the Governor's budget office; served as the controller and director of research and revenue analysis in the Department of Revenue; served as CFO and executive director at the Kansas Corporation Commission and as a legislative fiscal analyst.
