MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Former Greene County Commission Chairman Chip Beeker is challenging incumbent Terry Dunn for a seat on the Public Service Commission.

Dunn said he is running on his record of trying to protect consumers.

Dunn unsuccessfully sought formal hearings on the rates charged by state utilities including Alabama Power. Dunn said he believes the electric giant has been allowed too high of a profit margin and has too much influence with the state regulatory board.

Beeker disagrees with Dunn's push for formal hearings.

He said rates need to be low, but utilities need to be healthy to provide reliable service.
