PSC Welcomes Newly Appoined Second District Commissioner Christian Mirch



Lincoln, February 8, 2023- The newest member of the Nebraska
Public Service Commission received a warm welcome as he
attended his first Commission meeting on Wednesday, February 8.

Christian Mirch, 35, was appointed by Governor Jim Pillen as
the new District 2 Commissioner. District 2 encompasses all of
eastern Douglas County including the heavily populated Omaha

“I join my fellow Commissioners and staff in welcoming Christian
to the Nebraska Public Service Commission,” said Commission
Chair Dan Watermeier. “We look forward to his contribution to the
agency as we continue our work to bring quality services to the
citizens of Nebraska.”

An attorney and law enforcement officer, he earned his Juris
Doctorate from Creighton University in 2018, while working for the
Omaha Police Department.  In his 10-years with the department,
he served numerous roles to include criminal investigations and
the special operations section-gang unit. Upon leaving the
department, Mirch clerked for the Honorable Michael G. Heavican,
Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court. After completing
his clerkship, he engaged in both private practice and public service
as an attorney.

Commissioner Mirch said, “I want to thank Governor Pillen for this
opportunity. There is a lot to be excited about at the Commission
and I look forward to immersing myself in all aspects of the
regulatory process.”

Commissioner Mirch will fill out the remaining four years of a six-
year term. He replaces Crystal Rhoades who vacated the position
last year after being elected to serve as the District Court Clerk in
Douglas County. ###
