Put the PUBLIC back in the Public Service Commission


I am running for the Public Service Commission, District 2 because the current commissioners have failed the voters of Montana.   They have not protected the ratepayers form unfair rate increases. 
We pay among the highest electrical rates in the West.  That is not right!  I will stand up for you.  I will put the ‘Public’ back in the PSC.

Who serves on the PSC?

The PSC consists of 5 elected commissioners from 5 districts.  They are elected to a 4 year term; they are able to serve 8 years maximum.  Every 2 years there is an election for either 2 or 3 commissioners.
