Fiegen declares a win over McGovern in Public Utilities Commissioner Race

Posted: Updated:

After a few very stressful days leading up to the election, incumbent Kristie Fiegen has declared a win over challenger Matt McGovern for the Public Utilities Commissioner race.   

It appears Fiegen will be able to hold onto her position as one of three Public Utilities Commissioners.  

Fiegen has only been in office for a year and a half before this election.  She was appointed to the position by Governor Daugaard in August 2011.   

She says she began campaigning in March of this year.  

Just four days ago, Matt McGovern pulled ahead of Fiegen by six points in the South Dakota based Nielson Brothers poll.

For the past week, the two candidates have flooded the air waves with political commercials. 

In all her ads, Fiegen stressed her commitment to South Dakota Families and their pocket books. 

Before the race became so heated, Fiegan says her husband and tow boys put up hundreds of her campaign efforts are paying off.  

"I'm so proud of our campaign, we have worked so hard, traveling over 60,000 miles to see voters across the state," said Fiegen.  

Fiegen will serve a six year term as one of three public utilities commissioners.  Together they help ensure consumers receive the best possible electric and telecommunication services at fair prices.
