A little about Ms. Brug:

Leisa B. Brug is the Director of the Governor’s Office of Energy Policy and serves as Energy Policy Advisor to Governor Jan Brewer. As director, Ms. Brug manages an energy office staff of 19 people, who have been working to ensure that the State’s investment of $132 million in federal energy funds reap the benefits Arizonans expect and deserve.

She Co-Chairs the Governor’s Solar Energy Task Force, which submitted recommendations to Gov. Brewer last year that will help streamline the permitting process for renewable energy development in Arizona.

She is also Co-Chair of the Arizona/Mexico Commission Energy Committee, which, in its first year, is in the process of forming of a bi-national transmission task force between Arizona and Sonora, at the request of the Arizona and Sonora governors.
In addition, she is a member of the Arizona Commerce Authority Renewable Energy Committee and in 2011 helped transition the Energy Office from the Arizona Commerce Authority to the Governor’s Office of Energy Policy.

She began her work in Arizona in January of 2011. Previously, she served as Chief of Staff in the California Legislature and has an extensive career history in policy and research, crisis management and government affairs. She is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo and the Marion Bergeson Public Service Institute.

It is interesting to note, that Ms. Brug is the first person to serve as energy policy advisor to the governor and energy director for the State of Arizona.
