Mott for Holy Cross board

Dear Editor:

My friends are asking, “Why are you running for the Holy Cross Energy board of directors?” Here’s why:

1. I fully support the Holy Cross Energy vision of supplying reliable, economical electric power to its 44,000 members consistent with sound business and environmental practices.

2. I have related experience in electric power generation. As a graduate engineer from Cornell, I was employed in the power industry for 10 years, designing and building large central generating stations. Also, as project engineer for the Beaver Creek development, I was responsible for the design and construction of roads and utilities, which included the electric distribution system.

2. Having lived in Eagle County for 40 years, I have experience serving on numerous boards, including the Board of County Commissioners, county Planning Commission, school board, Upper Eagle Valley Sanitation District and the Colorado River Water Conservation District. Setting policy and solving problems cooperatively to serve the public interest has been fulfilling.

Holy Cross Energy has been a conscientious steward of natural resources, addressing efficiency, conservation, renewable resources and local power generation. In our world of increased competition for energy and environmental concerns, Holy Cross Energy faces continuing challenges to meet the electrical needs of their members while reducing environmental impacts.

Members will be receiving mail-in ballots soon after May 17. Please take the time to elect three directors to serve for the next three years.

Dave Mott
