A record you can rely on

Dear Editor:

My name is Robert H. Gardner. I am running for a seat on the Holy Cross Energy board of directors.

Holy Cross is a cooperative electric utility, in the Eagle River and Roaring Fork River valleys, governed by an elected board of directors. Holy Cross provides electricity to nearly 55,000 homes and businesses generating more than $100 million in revenues each year. Directors are elected from and by Holy Cross members/consumers.

I believe that Holy Cross should provide consumers with highly reliable electric service at a reasonable cost, balanced with renewable power supply, energy conservation, energy efficiency and consumer-service programs.

I am a lifelong resident of this part of Colorado. I was born in western Colorado. I attended school in Carbondale and Glenwood Springs. I graduated from Colorado State University. I raised my children here and spent most of my working career employed by Holy Cross Energy. I was involved with nonprofit and community organizations in both the Eagle and Roaring Fork river valleys. I have lived in Pitkin County, splitting my time between Basalt and Aspen, for the past nine years. I am familiar with all the communities in Holy Cross’ service territory.

I retired from Holy Cross after 30-plus years, progressing from laborer to executive management. I was a hands-on professional with a proven track record in general and utility management, human resources, communications, consumer and public relations, energy conservation and efficiency, and renewable-energy programs.

For more information, please visit my website at http://www.gardnerbradford.com.

I believe that my education, experience, knowledge and understanding of Holy Cross’ consumers and service territory, along with my commitment to provide reliable electric service at a reasonable cost as clean and green as possible, makes me uniquely qualified to represent you on the Holy Cross board of directors. I ask you for your vote.

Holy Cross consumers will receive an envelope containing their ballots sometime between today and Saturday. Open your envelope, review the information, cast your vote, and drop your ballot in the mail on or before June 8.

Robert H. Gardner
