WARREN LOTSBERG
Warren Lotsberg was born in Chicago, IL in 1942, raised near Minneapolis, MN and spent most of his adult life in SD. After graduating from high school at Buffalo, MN, he spent a year in the US Navy. After being discharged from the Navy, he attended the University of MN. He went to work for an outdoor billboard company in 1964, and then purchased its SD operation 10 years later creating Warren Advertising. The business was liquidated in 1979 as a result of the Highway Beautification Act. Warren joined Northwestern Public Service Co. in 1980 as Manager of Consumer Affairs. For the next 20 years, Warren served as the voice and face of Northwestern. He rose to be vice president of Public Affairs. Through extensive public speaking his weekly radio program called "Perspective", was broadcast on 15 stations three times a week and Warren appeared in Northwestern television ads becoming known as "Mister Northwestern Public Service. It culminated when Warren retired from NorthWestern Energy in August 2005. Warren also had a second career that actually transcended all others. He is one of the senior and best known lobbyists in the SD state legislature. It began when his billboard business came under attack due to the federal Highway Beautification Act, and he became active in defending the industry as a lobbyist; something that continued through the years and became one of his primary responsibilities while at NorthWestern. Warren has been a lobbyist in the SD legislature for 38 years.

But therein lies a problem which could rack up unexpected expenses, said Warren Lotsberg, Director of Government Affairs for Northwestern Energy.
"You no contract.You are hiring by the hour and the job," he said."No one knows how many times you may have a problem, and if you're paying by the visit or house call.That has to show up in your rates."
Another question comes to emergency situations.

On the other hand, Lotsberg disputed the Beck study and says Wagner residents are taking a great risk by going with municipal power.
"What kind of risk do you want to take?Northwestern has been here for 80 years, and they have a track record in Wagner as a known commodity.You know who we are and what we do.And you have a complete package under one roof," he said.
"You say you would have control over rates with municipal power, but you still have to cover the cost of doing business.

"We have sufficient transmission to serve all our own needs and to fulfill our requirements in the power pool," said Warren Lotsberg, director of public affairs for Northwestern Energy.
"But we're really not in the business of generating for sale outside of our own use," he said.

• Similarly, power companies developed more sophisticated disaster plans when the nation feared widespread outages with the arrival of the year 2000, said Warren Lotsberg, spokesman for NorthWestern Energy, which provides Aberdeen with electricity and natural gas.The Y2K scare stemmed from concern that computers would not function properly when 2000 arrived.
Nonetheless, since Sept. 11 NorthWestern has kept a closer eye on its equipment and conducted more frequent patrols of substations, Lotsberg said.
