Vail Daily letter: Dwyer for Holy Cross board
May 20, 2011
My name is Lynn Dwyer, and I’m currently the vice president of the Holy Cross board of directors. I’m a mother of two and a 20-year small-business owner. I’m your neighbor and your gardener: I own Dwyer Greens and Flowers and have served many of you for years. This year, I’m asking for your vote in the Holy Cross board election happening right now. (Your ballot should be in your mailbox – you need to sign and mail it by May 30.)
I hope I am a strong board voice for working families and small businesses. I bring a hard-working, fiscally conservative perspective to my position. I am the second director to earn certification from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association and the only woman ever elected to serve on the board. I am active in several community and business organizations, including the Colorado Nursery Association, Carbondale Rotary Club, Better Business Bureau and New Castle Chamber of Commerce. I also serve on the South Side Conservation District Board.
As vice president of the board, I am committed to fair and stable rates, clean energy, and innovative programs to help members use energy wisely and save money. I personally know many of you, my fellow co-op owners, and I’m committed to making this utility even better for all of us. I’m asking for your vote in this important election.
