La Plata Electric Association Board of Directors Election

La Plata Electric Association Board of Directors Election
Monique DiGiorgio - 05/27/2021
One of the most important roles of nonprofit organizations is to advocate for overarching
policies and goals on issues that impact the community. While promoting these policies,
non-profit organizations communicate with key decision makers and leaders who are then
trusted to implement these policies on behalf of the greater community. We entrust our
non-profit organizations to lead the charge on issues such as the environment, housing,
the local economy, and social justice. It is then our choice as an individual to support
those organizations that propel our worldview into action. This is not partisan politics, it's
democracy in action.
 
In a May 14th letter to the editor, Davin Montoya stated that non-profit organizations
endorsing or supporting our community leaders at LPEA is "corrupt:' This could not be
further from the truth. The moment we take away the voice of our non-profit entities in
supporting community leaders that best represent our goals, we take away our freedom
of speech and the underpinning of democracy itself. Our American democracy is founded
on freedom of speech and nonprofit organizations represent the primary vehicle for these
freedoms in a democracy that is "of the people, by the people, and for the people:' Nonprofit
organizations engaging in the LPEA election bring transparency and accountability
to these elections and raise the profile of their importance to our lives.
 
Local First works on behalf of its members and the business community to: keep energy
dollars local by ensuring businesses entrepreneurial investment opportunities while
creating competitive, high quality, local jobs; stabilize energy costs for citizens and
businesses as the cost of fossil fuel energy continues to fluctuate; and protect our quality
of life by keeping Durango's air, land and water resources healthy.
 
Enact your right to vote by 4pm on June 16th. Don't miss this chance to keep La Plata
County an amazing place to live.

With this year's runoff more like a slow bleed, it is easy to let one's whitewater guard down. But remember: flips and swims can happen any place at any time.
