"--- .-- -- w --. -" "The decisions we make in the next 3-5 years are going to have impacts for generations to come on our economy, on tile commn- nities out in oil and coal country, and also oil our landscape and natural heritage," said Crabtree. "[This year] is different from two years ago. Not only is the politi- cal climate different but also North Dakotans realize that there are big things happening in our state and important decisions be- ing made. They know that it is really, really important now who is holding these difl'erent offices and they are especially becoming aware of the Public Service Com- mission and the roles it's play- ing.'" According to Crabtree's web- site, Crabtree is a native North Dakotan: he grew up in Bismarck and ranches with his family in Dickey County, south of Kulm. A candidate previously for Public Service Commissioner in 2010, Crabtree has served as pol- icy director of the Great Plains Institute since 2002, where he has helped forge common ground on energy policy and technology among leaders in industry, agri- culture, state and federal govern- sent, labor, and consewation and environmental organizations in North Dakota, our region and na- tionally. CulTently, the National Enhanced Oil Re- c0very Initiative, a nationwide coalition of industry, state gov- ernment, and labor and environ- mental leaders that recently made bipartisan recommendations to Ongress and states aimed at sig- nificantly expanding American oil pToduction. Sen. Randy Christmann, R- Hazen, has the Republican nom- ination, and will face off with Crabtree in the General Election on Nov. 6.

There i a Imtior job,, isstie in the Red River Valley concerning the Sugar W,rkcrs t;nion (BCTGM) and American Crystal Sugar Co. As you knou. the "'locked out" Workers in North Dakota HAVE NOT received any unelnployment insurance benelits, v, hile the Workers t'n,m the Minnesota rhetorics tfAVE rccci',ed bcnlclits. It ix important t(y know that these W, rkcrs arc NO'P on strike v, ith the company. They were ,xilline to continue working without a coniract while negotiation,' continued. 1.ocking out the \\;Vurkers is the same ax being laid off, or being tcrnfiliated without cause. This should qualify them to be eligible for uncmplo) nlent i nstuancc benefits, but the State of North l)akota said "'N()". l.asl atlttlnln. Union nlcmbers petitioned the l+egislature in special session to rclnedy this situation. But the Republican controlled l.cgislature WOtLI) NOT allow the isstic to the Ilo,r for a ote. They said that there was not enough time duri n- the ,eck long special session to Mndlc the wquest, ttov, cver it seems, they had enough time IO work on the name change of a local sports team. The tTnion then tried to talk to Governor I)ahyinple directly, but iv+ice the (;m,'crnor denied them an audietlcc, sa)ing this was a labor dispute and hc didn't want to get revolved. This issue of the "'locked out" Sugar Workers is by far the biggest job isstic to de'clop in this district tyr posqbly the entire State in nlan,, years, aml the (;ovemor didn't want to get invol',cd. Where were our elected representatives during this time? \\;Vhcrc v, as Joe Miller? Our district Senator was SILENT when wc nccdcd his help. ("lnon North Dakota. can v,c do better than this?
