Mississippi’s Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley is calling on President Biden to appoint a minimum of two Mississippians to the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Board of Directors.

In a letter sent on Friday, Presley argues that it is imperative for Mississippi to be represented on the seven-member board as the Magnolia State is the second largest territory within the TVA boundaries.

“It’s only right and just that Mississippi be adequately and proportionally represented on the TVA Board of Directors given our state being the second largest territory in the TVA region. President Biden should use this opportunity to give Mississippians a voice on this board,” Presley wrote.

In May, three seats on the board will become vacant due to the expiration of terms of current members and withdrawals of nominations.

The TVA is one of the main suppliers of wholesale electricity in north Mississippi.
