Vote Turnbull for electric board

Dear Editor:

We are writing on behalf of Tom Turnbull, a candidate for the June 5 election. We have been using Holy Cross Electric since the 1950s and have always been impressed with its reliability, reasonable cost and quality of its board and employees.

Going back to original board members like Mela Cerise and managers like Ed Grange, Holy Cross has had an admirable string of capable, forward looking leaders. Since 2005 we’ve moved to the Excel area and have just gotten notice of another rate increase. Ugh.

Holy Cross is actively pursuing “green” alternatives and is prepared to buy the power if the hydro project goes through at the Darien Ranch in Marble. Customers can already support wind power by their own choice.

Probably the quality we all desire most in an electric company is reliability and we believe Holy Cross is a true leader in that regard. Tom, in his years on the board, had been a thoughtful and conscientious member, open to new ideas but fully aware of keeping costs and services steady.

It seems odd that the new candidates have not even attended any of the board meetings. They are open to the public. We urge you to vote for Tom Turnbull.

Pat and Bill Fender
