South Dakota Public Utilities Commissioner Kristie Fiegen announced her candidacy for re-election for the PUC in 2018 on Friday evening. Fiegen announced to a large crowd at the Lincoln County Lincoln Day officially launching her campaign.
“South Dakotans want a PUC commissioner who will listen to them and won’t waver in a commitment to taxpayers,” Fiegen said in her announcement.
Since joining the commission, Fiegen has focused her responsibility in three main areas. First is to be a consumer advocate for South Dakota utility consumers to keep rates reasonable.
Second, to advocate for expanding our utility infrastructure to ensure a vibrate economy in our rural state.
Third, Kristie does her day-to-day work with the utmost respect for the law and facts in every decision she makes. Her reputation of high integrity and honesty are important as she protects the process and citizens of our great state.
Fiegen must be nominated at the State Republican Party Convention in June 2018, and will then appear on the November 2018 ballot.
