(Directions Attached) Centergy Building 75 Fifth Street NW Atlanta Georgia 30308 Commissioner Tim Echols BIO: Tim Echols was elected to the Commission in the general election of November 2010 after spending 15 years in the non-profit sector. Echols founded 'TeenPact' and grew the mock legislative youth program to 38 states in his tenure. He continues to serve on the Board of Directors. Tim's campaign focused on consumer protection, clean energy, and accountability. He travels the state speaking to students, civic groups and businesses about the importance of the PSC's responsibilities especially providing accountability to those the agency regulates. Commissioner Echols has been outspoken about Georgia's nuclear waste--still sitting on both sites. He supports a Heritage Foundation plan that would privatize the reprocessing and disposal of commercial nuclear 'material.' Believing if the space program can be privatized, then certainly nuclear waste disposition can too. Tim has three degrees from the University of Georgia and still makes his home in the Athens area with his wife Windy and their seven children. Sincerely, Jose Aponte SAE International Atlanta Chair
