Campbell for Holy Cross board

I’m writing to recommend David Campbell of Vail for the Holy Cross Energy board of directors. I do this not specifically because of a policy agenda or position, but because I’ve called Dave a friend literally since kindergarten. I’m embarrassed to admit that adds up to about 50 years. We now live in neighboring valleys in the Holy Cross service area and share many of the same concerns as citizens and parents of school-age children.

Like me, Dave is a big fan of clean, renewable energy, but that’s not his sole focus. He brings a practical, business-like view to every issue and, for example, feels strongly about improving the Holy Cross grid for transmission efficiency and resilience to wildfire (take note, Basalt residents!).

David Campbell is smart, honest, respectful and creative. He’ll make an excellent Holy Cross board member. He also has a fearsome arsenal of Monty Python jokes stored in his high-functioning brain.
