Eric Skrmetta
Public Service Commissioner

A lawyer, businessman, husband and father, Eric Skrmetta was elected to the Louisiana Public Service Commission in 2008, holding one of five seats on the statewide body that governs utility providers, railroads and other public services in the Pelican State.

A graduate of LSU, Southern University Law School, and Tulane University, Skrmetta is a lifelong resident of South Louisiana and is proud to represent all or portions of 12 Louisiana Parishes.
His undergraduate degree in industrial technology and his life experiences in manufacturing have uniquely positioned him to clearly understand the technical nature of issues that are brought before the Commission. His legal education provides him with unique insight into issues that come before the LPSC. And his experience as a mediator has helped to achieve rapid resolution to problems, balancing the rights of utility providers to make a profit with the needs of citizens to receive services at the lowest possible cost.
 

STEVE EFFROS

Steve Effros launched his consulting company, Effros Communications, in July 1999, after 23-years as the head of the Cable Telecommunications Association (CATA), one of the major national trade associations for the cable television industry. Steve helped found the organization in 1976 to represent the legal and public policy positions of small and mid-sized cable operators. Over two decades, the “small” operators got big, and the “mid-sized” operators consolidated into the major corporations we know today. CATA and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) merged in June of 1999 and Steve took on a long-term senior advisory role to the NCTA.

As President of Effros Communications, and through his own law offices, Stephen R. Effros, PC, Steve has been retained as a consultant to major cable and Internet companies on strategic analysis, planning and communications issues. He speaks on telecommunications issues nationwide and overseas, and writes a weekly commentary for CableFax Daily, one of the leading cable television trade publications. He has been on the teaching faculty of the Practicing Law Institute (PLI) for the past ten years, and is an Adjunct Professor at George Mason University.
