ALJ Bonny Fetch appointed to replace Commissioner Tony Clark

By on July 9, 2012

On June 20th, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple appointed administrative law judge Bonny Fetch to the state's Public Utilities Commission. The seat was vacant due to Commissioner Tony Clark's appointment to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. 

ND PUC seats are won in state-wide elections, and Commissioner Fetch will serve until January, when an elected Commissioner will step into the seat. This fall, the seat is being contested by Republican State Senator Randy Christman and Brad Crabtree, a renewable energy advocate from Kulm, ND. 

Commissioner Fetch is a native of Bismarck, ND. The 68-year-old Fetch has been an administrative law judge since the North Dakota Legislature created the Office of Administrative Hearings in 1991.

The office has three full-time administrative law judges. Fetch, who has a psychology degree from the University of Texas at Austin, is the only non-lawyer.

Before that, Fetch was a hearing officer and analyst for North Dakota state government’s personnel division, which is now called Human Resource Management Services. She has also worked for the Mental Health Center in Mandan

She has been on the National Association of Hearing Officers Board since 2003 and just completed her second 2 year term as President.

After the election, Ms. Fetch plans to return to her position as an administrative law judge.
