The primary election is close at hand and the Corrector is going to highlight some of the primary races that affect our area. First on our list are the candidates for the District 1 Public Service Commissioner race for the seat being vacated by Democrat Greg Jergeson of Chinook.
Democrat Don Ryan of Great Falls is running unopposed and will face off in November with the winner of the Republican primary between Senator Jerry Black of Shelby and Travis Kavulla of Great Falls. KRTV recently posted interviews with both of the Republican candidates which are posted below.

The Corrector encourages each voter to make an informed decision when casting their ballots for this very important race in the June 8th primary election. Montana’s energy future depends upon you.
KRTV News has some great coverage of the various candidates on their website. http://www.krtv.com/pages/campaign-2010/ Sadly they don’t cover all of Hill County’s races and you will have to depend up on this opinionated blog and the inept services of the Havre Daily “News” for your candidate information.
UPDATE May /25/2010 - Left out the following website information for these candidates when I copied pasted onto the blog. My apologies
For further information on the Republican candidates take a look at Jerry Black’s website @ http://blackforpsc.com/ and Travis Kavulla’s website @ http://kavulla.com/
Democrat Don Ryan has further information @ http://www.donryanforpsc.com/ and on his Face Book page @ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Don-Ryan-for-PSC/384812993956?v=info#!/pages/Don-Ryan-for-PSC/384812993956?v=wall
