Land commissioner files to run for PRC

-A A +A

Pat Lyons is seeking the GOP nomination for the Dist. 2 position

By Barry Massey

SANTA FE — Land Commissioner Pat Lyons was among a crowded field of candidates to file Tuesday for seats on New Mexico’s utility regulatory agency.

Lyons, who can’t run again because of term limits, is seeking the GOP nomination for the District 2 position on the Public Regulation Commission. The district covers much of eastern and southeastern New Mexico. Also running for the GOP nomination is Robert Corn, a retired magistrate and former state legislator from Roswell.

Tularosa businesswoman Stephanie DuBois is seeking the Democratic nomination. She was the Democratic nominee in 2006 but lost in the general election to Republican David King, who can’t seek re-election because of term limits.

Tuesday was the filing deadline for the PRC, the Legislature, county and some judicial offices.

The PRC regulates electric, gas and water utilities, as well as some telecommunications, transportation, pipeline and insurance companies.

More than a dozen candidates are running for two other PRC seats.

Six Republicans and two Democrats filed for an open seat in PRC District 5, which covers south-central and southwestern New Mexico. Incumbent Democrat Sandy Jones is not seeking re-election and instead is running for land commissioner.
