Letter: Larissa Read for Holy Cross Energy board
Larissa Read is a positive force for advancing ideas and actions that enhance our community and will continue her contributions when elected to the Holy Cross Energy board of directors. With increasing awareness of the impacts of a warming climate on our water resources, forest health and recreational economy, our citizens are looking to utilities and service providers as those with the greatest ability to invest in the infrastructure and operations needed to make progress in reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases.
Holy Cross Energy has been a leader in the conversion to sustainable energy sources, in line with the values of Western Slope resort destinations and agricultural communities. Larissa supports these values and brings a passion for public service, strong critical thinking and the ability to balance financial realities with sound climate policy.
She will hit the ground running with an understanding of the energy cost and climate challenges faced by local businesses, ranchers and the recreation industry. Her experience and track record in facilitating difficult and complex community discussions have earned her a reputation as an effective contributor and heartfelt leader. Please support Holy Cross in its efforts to advance towards its sustainable energy goals by voting for Larissa Read.
