The State

Bill Bagley, who ended 20 years in public office by resigning from the state Public Utilities Commission, said he is through with full-time office-holding. "I have the wonderful luxury of not needing to see my name in the paper, because it's been there," said Bagley, 57, a wry Marin County Republican who called himself an advocate of "civil rights, human rights and economic rights. Bagley, who resigned Friday, returned to the San Francisco law firm he left in May, 1983, when Gov. George Deukmejian appointed him to the five-member commission that regulates privately owned utilities and transportation companies.
