Vail Daily letter: Re-elect Lynn Dwyer
Electricity affects nearly every aspect of our lives. As member-owners of Holy Cross, it is up to us to see that our energy needs are provided for in a manner consistent with our interests. The Holy Cross board of directors is our elected body to ensure that these interests are served. Our annual votes represent our opportunity to make sure that the board of directors truly represents our interests and concerns. Please vote!When I was elected to the board as a director, I immersed myself in becoming familiar with the workings of the utility business as well as the history and strong performance of Holy Cross itself. I consider it an honor and an important responsibility to represent the working families and small businesses throughout the Holy Cross territory. I started Dwyer Greens & Flowers 20 years ago and built it up from nothing through long hours and careful budgeting. These are the values and approach that I believe are crucial to the success and well-being of any small business – or household – and these are also essential to the management of our utility.Our board has a diverse composition presently, and has successfully strengthened Holy Cross’ position as a leader in our state and nationally. More importantly, we have kept electric rates low while responding to member needs for reliability and desires for a diverse power supply and member services. I believe that it is essential to keep a moderate voice “at the table” to represent the hardworking families and small businesses who we serve. I hope you agree and will offer your vote so I may continue my service to you. Thank you for your consideration and involvement in our communities and our future.Lynn Dwyer
Melina Valsecia said her experience as an immigrant in Eagle County helped her understand the need for a new way of looking at how service providers engage with the growing Latino population, many of whom are first- or second-generation immigrants.
