Appointed PSC Commissioner Fedorchak to run for election in 2014
BISMARCK – North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Julie Fedorchak, who was appointed to the post in January, plans to run for election in 2014 to fill out the remainder of the term that ends in 2016.
Fedorchak will announce her candidacy Monday in Bismarck and Fargo, she stated in a news release Friday.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple appointed Fedorchak to the commission in January to replace Kevin Cramer after his election to the U.S. House of Representatives last November. The six-year commission term expires in 2016, but state law requires an appointed statewide elected official to run for the office in the next general election.
“The last 10 months on the PSC have confirmed for me that my skills and experience are a good match for this position, and my heart for public service is stronger than ever,” Fedorchak said in the news release. She said she will begin outlining her goals and priorities for the position on Monday.
