Ousted PUC chief Ellen Anderson takes Dayton job offer

Ellen Anderson, who lost her job as chair of the Public Utilities Commission Monday when Republicans in the state Senate rejected her nomination, says she’s accepted a job offer from Gov. Mark Dayton.

She’ll be a senior adviser to the governor on energy and environmental issues.

Dayton had blasted Senate Republicans Monday after their vote to oust Anderson.

Anderson, a former state Senator who resigned her elected position last March when Dayton appointed her to the PUC position, said this morning that she’s “very grateful to [Dayton] for his support and very excited about this new opportunity, so stay tuned.”
