PSC Candidate Koopman: My Opponents Are Unqualified

Republican Candidate for Public Service Commission Roger Koopman

Republican PSC Candidate Roger Koopman talks with MTPR Capitol Reporter Corin Cates-Carney.

Montana’s Public Service Commissioners have a lot of power. They regulate monopoly utility companies, meaning they have influence over people’s energy bills, as well as the environmental impact of Montana’s energy sources.

There are two seats on the five member Public Service Commission this year. This week, we’re hearing from the three people running for one of the seats. Those people are Republican incumbent Roger Koopman, Democrat Pat Noonan and Independent Caron Cooper.

They’re running for the District 3 seat representing southwest Montana.

Corin Cates-Carney is the news director at Montana Public Radio. He joined MTPR in 2015 and is a graduate of the University of Montana School of Journalism.
