BUTTE - A former Montana legislator who once ran for governor is joining the board of NorthWestern Corp.
Dorothy Bradley was elected to a one-year term Wednesday at the company's annual meeting, held at Montana Tech in Butte.
Bradley is a lawyer and lives in Clyde Park. She ran as a Democrat for governor in 1992, narrowly losing to Republican Marc Racicot. She was also Democrat Joe Mazurek's running mate in his unsuccessful 2000 primary election bid for governor.
Bradley served 16 years as a state representative, from 1971-78 and 1985-92, and served from 2000 to 2007 as District Court administrator for Montana's 18th Judicial District, which includes Gallatin County.
As a board member she succeeds Jon Fossel, a former New York financial executive who lives in Ennis and chose not to seek re-election to the board.
