Nelson Wins Seat On SD Utilities Commission

November 6, 2012, 10:19 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota Public Utilities Commission Chairman Chris Nelson has been elected to a new term on the panel that regulates grain warehouses and natural gas, electric and telephone utilities in the state.

The 48-year-old Republican defeated Democratic challenger Nick Nemec, a 54-year-old farmer and former state lawmaker from Holabird, for a four-year term on the commission.

Nelson is a former secretary of state who was appointed nearly two years ago to fill a vacancy on the PUC.

Nemec had criticized Nelson and other members of the PUC for not doing enough to protect farmers who lost money when they sold sunflowers to a failed grain-buying company that cannot pay them. Nelson countered that the commission did everything it could under current law to protect those farmers.
