Former Congressional candidate Mark L Wicks has filed for Public Service Commissioner in District 1. District one is currently served by Travis Kuvalla. He has served two terms and is ineligible for re-election.

Wicks, a rancher, writer, and entrepreneur from Inverness is best known for his 2017 Congressional run against Greg Gianforte, and Rob Quist. His debate performance propelled his campaign into the spotlight and supporters coined the term, “Send the work truck” after Wicks made the analogy that Gianforte was like a luxury car, Quist was a little broken down half ton pickup that just couldn’t do the work, while Wicks was a work truck that could get things done in Washington DC.

Wicks graduated from Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon with an associate degree in aviation maintenance technology. He then attended MSU Bozeman and studied Technology Education and History. While at MSU, he spent a semester abroad in Sweden.

Wicks is 47 years old and lives in Inverness, Montana with his wife of 22 years, Beth Wicks. They have four children ranging in age from 6 to 19. Wicks runs a commercial cattle operation and is a highway contract route operator for the United States Postal Service. He has also established a produce route that stretches from Shelby to Plentywood during the summer months.

His hobbies include metal detecting, shooting, and following his children to high school events.
