Shuler to run Duke Energy’s lobbying operation

Here’s an excerpt from the Nov. 27 story in the Asheville Citizen–Times:

Outgoing U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler will run Duke Energy’s lobbying operation in Washington after the end of his term, his office and the company said.

Shuler, a Democrat representing in the 11th District in Western North Carolina, will be the company’s senior vice president of federal affairs.

Duke, which merged with Progress Energy this year, is the nation’s largest public utility with 7.1 million customers. It is based in Charlotte.
