Glenn Spurlock on the job as Leesburg’s new electric director

The city of Leesburg welcomed Glenn Spurlock this week as its new electric director.

Glenn has more than 30 years of experience in the electric industry, with primary skills in generation, transmission, regulatory, and systems design, a news release states. He replaces Patrick Foster, who recently retired.

Glenn has worked with investor-owned utilities, or IOUs, such as Florida Power Corp./Progress Energy, and for the past 15 years, he served in various capacities for Seminole Electric Cooperative. He earned an electrical engineering degree at the University of South Florida.

“Glenn brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our Electric Department,” City Manager Al Minner says in the release. “I think Glenn will make positive impacts that benefit our more than 24,000 customers. He will have some different perspectives, coming from the IOU and Electric Cooperative worlds.”

Leesburg has more than 22,000 residents, and city government serves twice that number with its electric, gas, water, wastewater, and fiber-optic public utilities. Leesburg also is a central hub for commerce, attracting 50,000 people to work each weekday. For more information, visit
