A pitch from Palmer
Most of you have recently received the Consumer Connection newsletter and ballot from Holy Cross Energy. I’m asking for your vote and also ask that you vote for Marshall Foote; together we are running for the Holy Cross Energy Board to develop real energy efficiency incentives and clean local renewable power for our members.
Our focus will be to diversify our energy supplies so that prices remain fair, stable and low, while reducing climate impacts. Not only are these efforts good for the environment, they also create local jobs and retain capital ” every dollar of energy saved or generated locally is money which stays in our community rather than going elsewhere.
I have worked over the past 12 years on renewable energy and efficiency; formerly as the environmental coordinator for Vail Resorts, executive director for the Eagle Valley Alliance for Sustainability, and currently as the environmental policy planner for Eagle County. I will use my experience and leadership to create progressive programs through collaboration.
I live in Eagle with my wife, Kalie, and our two daughters, Montana and Savanna. As a father, I am committed to creating a bright future for our children. I’ll work to expand renewables and ways to save energy, just as you asked for in the 2007 Holy Cross customer survey. I’d be honored by your vote so that together we can achieve these goals.
The Aspen City Council directed staff to move forward with the Burlingame early childhood education center, but decided it needs more information on the affordable housing units that are part of the schematic design at a work session Monday.
