Vail Daily letter: Elect Dave Munk to Holy Cross board

Andre Schwegler
Vail, CO, Colorado

Thank you for taking the time to vote in the Holy Cross Energy Board of Directors election. Until recent years, the choices for our sources of electricity were limited to coal and natural gas and, to a lesser degree, hydro.

Today, renewable sources such as wind, solar and biomass are becoming a larger component of our overall power mix, empowering us to make better choices about where our electricity comes from.

As the mix of power sources and the economic and environmental considerations become more complex, we need energetic and forward-thinking board members.

For those of you who may not know Dave Munk, I would like to introduce him and offer my strongest endorsement. I have known Dave and his family for more than 20 years. Dave is a sensible and responsible person who will make an excellent addition to this important board.

As a business owner and 30-year resident in the Roaring Fork Valley, I look for a socially and economically responsible approach to managing our utility. I appreciate Dave’s 15-year business background working with utilities across the Western states to reduce waste and improve efficiency, which will translate into savings and a cleaner environment for Holy Cross member households and businesses.

As part of his preparation for this board position, Dave has visited with key Holy Cross customers and stakeholders throughout the service territory, including Vail Resorts, lodging representatives and other local businesses.

He has outlined his positions in a website at, and you can reach him directly with questions or comments at dave

Thank you for your consideration and your vote for Dave Munk for the Holy Cross Board.
