The American Public Power Association (APPA) last week named Mason County PUD 3 Commissioner Linda Grott to a one-year term on its Policy Makers Council.

Gott has served on the Mason County PUD 3 board of commissioners since 1999, and is in her third six-year term. She has had a variety of leadership roles with Northwest utility trade groups and on boards for public power consortiums.

She is the first woman elected to the PUD 3 commission in its nearly 75-year history, according to the utility.

The 40-member Policy Makers Council assists APPA in promoting federal legislation that is important to public power utilities such as PUD 3, and works to protect utilities from harmful legislation. It also provides advice on other issues of importance to the national organization.

Members of the APPA Policy Makers Council are appointed from 10 geographic regions and include at-large representatives. Its members serve on utility boards or are elected officials in public power communities.

The American Public Power Association is based in Washington, D.C. It is the service organization for more than 2,000 community-owned electric utilities.
