COUNCIL APPOINTS FORMER PUGET SOUND ENERGY V.P. TO CITY LIGHT BOARD
"Seattle will benefit from Gary B. Swofford's 35 years of experience"

SEATTLE - The Seattle City Council confirmed the appointment today of former Puget Sound Energy Vice President Gary B. Swofford to the Seattle City Light Advisory Board.

"Mr. Swofford brings a wealth of expertise and experience and we're very pleased he's willing to serve," says Council member Jean Godden, chair of the Energy and Environmental Policy Committee. Swofford has over 35 years of experience in the energy industry. He currently serves as General Manager of Swofford Energy Consulting, LLC. Previously, he was Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Puget Sound Energy (PSE). Swofford has also served as V.P. for PSE in Customer Service and has two degrees, in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington and in Engineering Economy for Public Utilities from Stanford University.

"Gary Swofford's background and experience reflects the wealth of candidates that have come forward for consideration. His appointment compliments the professional depth and breadth of the Board's composition," said Council member Jim Compton, Vice-Chair of the Energy and Environmental Policy Committee.

The Advisory Board, created in 2003, advises elected officials and utility managers on policies related to City Light finances, power supply and risk management and is composed of six members, half appointed by the mayor and half by the City Council.
