January 13, 2004

ATLANTA, – Georgia Public Service Commissioner Doug Everett will serve as chairman of the five-member utility regulatory board during 2004.

A native of Cordele, Georgia, Commissioner Doug Everett is the first Republican elected to the Commission from Southwest Georgia. Before his election to the Commission in 2002, he served three terms in the Georgia House from Albany.

As a State Representative, Everett served on the House Industry Committee and the Subcommittee on Utilities. Commissioner Everett was born in Cordele, Georgia but moved to Sylvester where he graduated from high school. He entered Georgia Tech but later transferred to Georgia Teachers College (now Georgia Southern University) and majored in math.

After moving to Albany, Commissioner Everett first worked for Albany First Federal Savings and Loan before starting his own business in 1974, Southern Appraisal Company. This business specializes in appraising large commercial and industrial properties.

In 1980, he received his MAI appraisal, the highest appraisal designation one can receive. Prior to serving as a legislator, Everett served on the Albany Zoning and Planning Board of Appeals, the Board of Tax Assessors and three terms on the Albany City Commission, including two years as Mayor Pro Tem.

Everett is married to Janice Perry Johnson of Montezuma. The couple has three grown children, Mitch, Mike, and Denice Delk, and three grandchildren. Everett belongs to the Rotary Club and is a former member of the Sylvester JAYCEES and the Sylvester Kiwanis Club.
