SD Republicans Nominate Nelson, Fiegen To PUC

June 22, 2012, 3:39 PM


South Dakota Republicans have nominated incumbents Chris Nelson and Kristie Fiegen to run for new terms on the state Public Utilities Commission.

Nelson and Fiegen were both appointed to fill vacancies on the commission that regulates grain warehouses, natural gas, electric and telephone utilities. They are now seeking election to continue on the panel.

Nelson, a former secretary of state, is running for a four-year term against Democrat Nick Nemec of Holabird.

Fiegen, a former state lawmaker, is running for a six-year term against Matt McGovern.

Democrats have accused Nelson and Fiegen of not doing enough to protect farmers against a failed seed company that owes farmers millions of dollars for sunflower. Nelson and Fiegen say they have done everything allowed under current law to help farmers.
