Crabtree’s depth for the ND PSCBrad Crabtree is an experienced energy leader who will restore balance to the Public Service Commission. For more than 20 years, Crabtree has advanced North Dakota’s energy future, from accelerating coal carbon capture and sequestration technology to organizing international delegations to gain knowledge of other countries’ best energy practices. Crabtree is an advocate for wind power, energy efficiency and responsible development of fossil fuels.
Crabtree’s website shows the depth and detail of his energy-policy knowledge; incumbent Kevin Cramer’s website instead focuses on gay marriage, abortion and tea party rallies. The Public Service Commission is about energy policy, not social conservatism and party politics.
Crabtree will bring a new and innovative voice to the Public Service Commission.
