Play associated audio

There will be a new People's Counsel in the District. WAMU has learned the official advocate for utility consumers will not be re-nominated by Mayor Adrian Fenty. Since 1991, Elizabeth Noel has served as the People's Counsel. For six straight terms, she was appointed to represent District residents in disputes with utility companies, push for lower rates, and help educate consumers about energy efficiency.

The Office of the People's Counsel is an independent agency of the D.C. Government. The office also represents D.C. consumers before federal regulatory agencies.

The Mayor's office has not said who they want to replace Noel or why she wasn't re-nominated.
