The general election is just a year away, and today the first candidate announced her intent to run. Julie Fedorchak says she is hoping to be officially elected to the Public Service Commission. She was appointed to the position by the governor nearly a year ago when Kevin Cramer left his seat on the commission to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I know what this commitment is, I know what’s involved. I know what the impact will be on my family, because it’s a big commitment. And it’s a huge honor, as well. And I think it’s a really important priority, and my husband and I agree with that,” says Fedorchak.
She says her priorities include maintaining affordable electric services for North Dakotans and re-examining the states pipeline safety programs.
The six-year term she is hoping to complete expires in 2016.
