On 6/16/2010 the terms of Commissioner Aranoff as Chairman and Commissioner Person as Vice-Chairman expired. According to law, since Aranoff is a Democrat, the next Chairman must by a Republican and the Vice-Chairman must now be a Democrat. Again, according to law, since the President didn't actively appoint anyone as Chairman or Vice-Chairman, the highest-ranking current Republican Commissioner becomes Chairman and highest-ranking current Democrat Commissioner becomes Vice-Chairman. That means Deanna Tanner Okun is now Chairman and Shara Aranoff should be the new Vice-Chairman.
An internal e-mail acknowledged that Commissioner Okun is now the new Chairman until 6/16/2012, but it didn't mention the new Vice-Chairman. I *think* it will be Commissioner Aranoff, but am waiting for confirmation.
