Christian Mirch, 35, was appointed in January 2023, by Governor Jim Pillen to serve the remaining four-years of a six-year term representing District 2.
District 2 encompasses all of eastern Douglas County including the heavily populated Omaha Metro.
"The Commission does vital work for the citizens of our state," Mirch said. "And I intend to immerse myself in all aspects of the regulatory process."
An attorney and active law enforcement officer, Commissioner Mirch earned his Juris Doctorate from Creighton University in 2018 while working for the Omaha Police Department (OPD).
