Political career

Florida Public Service Commission (2010-2014)

Balbis began his four-year term as a member of the Florida Public Service Commission following his appointment by Governor Rick Scott (R) in September 2010.[1] In September 2014, with his term scheduled to expire in January 2015, Balbis announced he would not seek reappointment to the regulatory board.[5]



In 2011, Gov. Rick Scott (R) reappointed Balbis to the Florida Public Service Commission to serve a four-year term ending January 1, 2015.[6] He declined to apply for a second term on the commission.[2]


Balbis was appointed to the Florida Public Service Commission in September 2010 by Gov. Charlie Crist. Crist stated, "Eduardo's duties overseeing municipal utilities and public works during the past three years have already given him the opportunity to demonstrate his commitment to protecting consumers. As an engineer, he also understands the importance of safeguarding Florida's fresh water supply."[1]
