Vail Daily letter: Gilman for Holy Cross board
May 20, 2011
You have likely already received a ballot in the mail from Holy Cross Energy for the annual board of directors election. I am running for a board position in the Northern District and ask for your support.
I know utility elections seem pretty mundane and unimportant, but I promise you – this actually matters. Just seven people in Western Colorado get the final say in important decisions that directly affect us all. It is critical that board members have in-depth knowledge about the needs and usage of the members to pave a well-informed path forward. I understand as well as anyone how important affordable, reliable and clean electricity is to you, your families and businesses. I have worked one-on-one with hundreds of homeowners, business owners, and tenants to reduce energy usage and save money. I’m also a local small-business owner with experience making difficult financial and planning decisions and would be able to represent the best interests of the members. The strength of Holy Cross and its board have everything to do with the board’s members, so I hope you will consider voting this year.
I look forward to working with this great community to help make it even better. Please visit http://www.megangilman.com for more information, and don’t forget to mail your signed ballot by June 4.
