Fargo businessman to run for Public Service Commission

FARGO – A Fargo businessman is running for a seat on the North Dakota Public Service Commission.

Todd Reisenauer is seeking his party’s endorsement to run for the seat that’s been held by Commissioner Brian Kalk since he was elected to a six-year term in 2008.

Reisenauer will officially announce his candidacy Thursday during stops in Bismarck, Fargo and Grand Forks, according to a statement from the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party.

Reisenauer is a graduate of North Dakota State University and has a master’s degree in management from the University of Mary.

Democrats will endorse their slate of statewide candidates at the party’s state convention March 28-30 in Fargo.

In the other PSC race, Commissioner Julie Fedorchak, who was appointed to the commission in 2012 to take the place of now-U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, is running to fill out the remaining two years of the six-year term. First-term state Sen. Tyler Axness is seeking the Democratic endorsement for the seat.
