Sandra Hochstetter, a member of the three-person Arkansas Public Service Commission, will resign this fall for a job with an electric utility, the commission announced Tuesday.

Hochstetter will become vice president of strategic affairs for the Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation, according to the PSC news release.

She was first appointed by then-Gov. Mike Huckabee to the commission as chair July 1, 2000. She was reappointed in 2006 to her current term on the commission when her term as chairman expired.

Hochstetter previously served as executive director of the commission and as Huckabee's regulatory policy adviser when he was governor.

Hochstetter has worked in utility regulation for more than 22 years and was a lawyer for CenterPoint Energy before going into public service.

Her current term expires in January 2011.

The AECC is based in Little Rock and provides electric power to about 460,000 customers through 17 electric distribution cooperatives.
