Wheeler for energy independence

To the editor,

As a Durango resident and small business owner, I appreciate an LPEA candidate who promotes the use of affordable, locally generated, clean, renewable energy. Tim Wheeler, Dist 4, has 17 years experience in engineering and management. He was the owner of Durango Coffee Co. for 12 years and has served on numerous nonprofit boards. He has the technical knowledge and leadership experience to gain greater energy independence to lower rates. I have confidence in his vision to prioritize LPEA’s future over its past. LPEA Ballots are mailed out April 17. Please vote!
