Wyoming Public Service Commission (2013-present)
Brighton was appointed to the Wyoming Public Service Commission by Gov. Matt Mead on February 7, 2013. The state Senate initially rejected the nomination on February 26, 2013, but reconsidered, approving of Brighton the next day. Sen. Cale Case (R) had called for the chamber to reject Brighton, as well as Bill Russell, on the grounds that they are both attorneys and only attorneys have been named to the commission since 2005.
