Former House Speaker Vincent to run for Montana PSC

Democrat John Vincent of Gallatin Gateway paid his filing fee Thursday to become an official candidate for public service commissioner in District 3, which represents southwestern Montana.

Vincent, 65, is running for the seat currently held by Commissioner Bob Raney, D-Livingston, who is not running for re-election. District 3 includes 14 counties and the cities of Butte, Bozeman, Anaconda, Livingston, Dillon and Roundup.

In a news release, Vincent said his “number-one priority” is reliable, affordable energy for Montana ratepayers, and that he’d push hard to bring more green energy to the state, such as wind, solar and geothermal power.
