Commissioner Prequalifications

There are statutory qualifications to becoming a commissioner, as follows: "Residence. At the time of filing a declaration of candidacy for the office of public regulation commission member, a candidate shall reside in the district for which he files. If any elected member of the public regulation commission permanently removes his residence from or maintains no residence in the district from which he was elected, he shall be deemed to have resigned and his successor shall be selected as provided in the Public Regulation Commission Apportionment Act [8-7-1 NMSA 1978]."
