For the vacant seat on the State Corporation Commission, the House of Delegates wants Richmond lawyer/lobbyist Bernard McNamee. The Senate wants a former delegate, Barnie Day. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that yesterday, three new candidates for the post interviewed with the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee.
They are Henrico County Circuit Judge Catherine C. Hammond, Deputy Attorney General Frank Ferguson and Richard L. Savage, a lobbyist and former deputy attorney general.
The seat has been open since Feb. 1, when Judge Theodore V. Morrison retired.
