Vail Daily letter: Prince for Holy Cross board
May 20, 2011
Your vote can make a difference. This is your chance to have a say in the energy needs of our Western Slope communities.
My name is Scott Prince. I am seeking a position on the Holy Cross board of directors and I ask for your support. In the next few days, you will be receiving the Holy Cross annual meeting newsletter via postal mail. Enclosed in this newsletter is a ballot and return envelope. Completing the ballot will only take a few moments, and I ask for your consideration.
I am a resident of Avon and have lived in the Vail Valley since 1993. My employment and academic background will ensure Holy Cross is a well-run organization. Holy Cross is our energy provider, and it needs to be managed as a business. The board needs experienced directors with long and solid histories of successful financial management and planning. That’s of primary importance, and that’s why I ask for your vote.
I believe my many years of financial background, together with my leadership experience and high interest in energy-related matters and technology, will help to ensure that Holy Cross will be well-run. I believe we can take our cooperative and our members to increased levels of energy distribution and usage efficiency. I promise to bring new ideas and a fresh perspective to the board.
I have nearly two decades of experience in all aspects of financial planning and banking. I currently work for Wells Fargo, one of our nation’s largest banks. Additionally, I serve as a commissioner on the town of Avon Planning and Zoning Commission and as a director on the board of a nonprofit organization. I have also served on the Vail Board of Realtors and in addition I have given many volunteer hours to organizations in western Colorado.
I received a business degree from Cal State University, Sacramento and an M.B.A. from the University of Denver. I am married; my wife and I have a 5-year-old son in public elementary school.
