“It continues to be an honor and privilege for me to serve our members, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve another term on the Board of Directors! I remain energized by the challenge of providing our members with reliable electric service at a reasonable cost—and not just reliable power, but also resilient and sustainable. As the factors affecting the grid and our power supply keep changing, my experience, knowledge and commitment help me to better serve our members. Working with my fellow directors and management, I look forward to another term of continued service,” he says.
