Vote for Munk

Dear Editor:

It’s time to vote for Dave Munk as a director of Holy Cross Energy. He understands the importance of vision and leadership regarding our rural energy co-op. Dave’s day job involves working with utilities around the West to implement energy- and water-efficiency programs.

He knows and has seen that investing in energy efficiency, demand-side management, and renewable generation at the utility level can eliminate the need for capital-intensive new coal plants, for example by buying renewable power from small municipalities like Basalt that have a small-scale hydro plant in their future. Investing in and producing renewable energy on a local level helps our regional contractors and entrepreneurs by keeping money in our valley.

Dave’s knowledge and leadership around these issues will help to keep Colorado’s air and water clean, greenhouse gases in check, and our electrical rates low. Your ballot should be arriving in the mail soon if you are a Holy Cross customer.
