Letter: Larissa Read for Holy Cross Energy board

In 2018, Holy Cross Energy announced its seventy70thirty resource plan committing to 70 percent renewable energy by 2030. It’s a bold and ambitious plan by our utility to transition its energy supply to clean energy sources and ensure that the economies of the mountain communities it serves continue to thrive. 

A changing climate represents a significant threat to communities like mine that depend on the outdoor recreation economy. Efforts like those at Holy Cross Energy to radically reshape its business for the long-term health of the communities it serves are only possible with a board of directors that supports this transition. 

You have an opportunity to elect board members right now by mail-in ballot if you are a Holy Cross customer. The best person for the job is Larissa Read. She has worked on several local climate action plans and will be a strong voice for our future while ensuring we continue to secure low-cost energy. Please vote for Larissa.
