PSC Candidate Lake: I'll Protect Montana Consumers

Public Service Commission
Public Service Commission District 4 candidate Incumbent Republican Bob Lake

Montana’s Public Service Commissioners have a lot of power. They regulate monopoly utility companies, meaning they have influence over people’s energy bills. There are two contested seats on the five-member Public Service Commission this year. In this interview, we hear from incumbent Republican Bob Lake.

We'll have an interview with Lake's opponent, Democrat Gail Gutsche this week as well.

Lake and Gutsche are running for the District 4 seat representing Northwest Montana in Lincoln, Sanders, Mineral, Missoula, Powell, Granite and Ravalli counties.
