November 12, 2019

“Distinguished veteran, Al Erwin dedicated much of his life to public service including service as a Swift Boat officer in the Viet Nam.

“He returned to serve as chief of staff for Houston Congressman Bob Casey in 1972.

“Governor Dolph Briscoe appointed Erwin to the Office of State-Federal Regulation in DC. Mark White named him as one of the first three Commissioners to lead the newly formed Public Utility Commission.

“Even after official public service, he was never far from the Capitol having formed Erwin & Associates doing a little lobbying and advising elected and appointed officials.”
