Skeehan smart, forward-thinking

To the editor,

As if we don’t have enough to worry about, now we have to worry about some malevolent agency having unrestricted access to our electrical grid! Imagine our electrical system being suddenly shut down without warning, or worse. The results would be catastrophic.

This is just one of many reasons why I am voting for Kirsten Skeehan to a seat on the La Plata Electric Association Board of Directors. Besides her obvious business acumen as a partner in the Pagosa Baking Co., and her commitment to our community through her volunteer service as a board member on the Pagosa Springs Noon Rotary, serving on the Archuleta County Housing Authority Board of Directors, a volunteer driver for the American Cancer Society and her bachelor of science degree in resource management, Kirsten also understands international security issues as a U. S. Naval Officer in intelligence, information systems and worldwide secure communications.

Kirsten Skeehan has a realistic and businesslike view of how our electrical system should grow, moving steadily but sensibly from fossil fuels to renewable resources to generate our electricity. That’s the kind of representative I want on our electrical coop board of directors.

For all these reasons and more, I ask you to vote for Skeehan as a new, smart and forward thinking candidate to the La Plata Electric Association Board of Directors.
