Brooks Named to AMP Wall of Fame

Published on: 10/09/2017

COLUMBUS, OH: Keith Brooks, retired legislative counsel to the Ohio Municipal Electric Association (OMEA), was named the 2018 American Municipal Power (AMP) Wall of Fame inductee during the Awards Banquet on Sept. 27 at the AMP/OMEA Conference.

“Keith’s leadership and strategic guidance throughout his career benefited all of Ohio’s municipal electric communities and AMP,” said AMP President and CEO Marc Gerken. “It is not an overstatement to say that his leadership and strategic guidance helped establish public power’s presence at the Ohio Statehouse.”

Brooks served as the OMEA’s legislative counsel and represented Ohio municipal electric communities before state policymakers and industry stakeholders for more than 30 years until his retirement at the end of last year. He was engaged in numerous legislative battles before the Ohio General Assembly, including historic energy-related legislation, numerous state budget bills and countless other legislation.

The Wall of Fame program was launched in 2010 to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to AMP, the OMEA and to public power in member communities. Brooks joins 22 other Wall of Fame inductees.

Brooks will be inducted to the AMP Wall of Fame during a celebration next April.
