The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission has re-elected Gary Hanson as its chairman.
The vote was held among the panel's three commissioners - Hanson, Chris Nelson and Kristie Fiegen - at the commission's meeting on Tuesday. Nelson was elected as vice chairman.
Hanson is serving his second six-year term on the commission. He was first elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2008. He has also served as mayor of Sioux Falls from 1994 to 2002 and as a South Dakota state senator for three terms.
Hanson says he appreciates the confidence of the other two commissioners their goal is to assure South Dakotans have safe, dependable and affordable utilities.
