Why I’m running

Dear Editor:

Now that the Holy Cross ballots have arrived, it’s great to see the spirited dialogue in the press and among valley residents. As owners of Holy Cross Energy, it’s our privilege and role to elect leaders who represent our views and to weigh in on important issues such as the proposed voting change.

I am running for the board of directors to bring a fresh perspective, proven ideas and new energy to improve our cooperative. For 15 years I have worked with utilities around the country to design and implement community efficiency programs, and I will bring the lessons learned from successful utilities to our co-op so we model our programs and policies on the best practices available. Working with the rest of the board and Holy Cross management, we can strengthen our position as a leading cooperative utility while improving the high level of service to our members.

I have lived in the valley for 26 years and have two young children. Our children deserve no less than our best efforts to keep pace with current conditions while keeping an eye on the future they will inherit. Increasing member programs, services and communication are essential to maintaining our position as a leading cooperative and energy provider. We don’t need to reinvent successful programs or take unnecessary risks. Solutions and options do exist today, and I will help speed their consideration and adoption by our utility.

Thank you for your interest in Holy Cross, and I hope your involvement will continue beyond the current election. I invite you to contact me directly at davemunk4holycross@rof.net or visit http://www.davemunkforholycross.org to share your comments or learn more about my positions. I appreciate your consideration and your vote by June 4.

Dave Munk
