McGovern Grandson Running For SD PUC

March 19, 2012, 12:22 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The grandson of former South Dakota senator and Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern says he will seek the Democratic Party's endorsement to run for a seat on the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission.

Sioux Falls attorney Matt McGovern says he will be an "independent voice" and will not accept campaign contributions from lobbyists or the utilities the PUC regulates.

McGovern is seeking the seat held by Kristie Fiegen.  She was appointed to the PUC to fill a vacancy last August.

McGovern in 2009 was mentioned as a possible U.S. Senate candidate but said at the time he was focused on his work with a nonpartisan group promoting sustainable energy initiatives.
