Luschen ‘committed to LPEA mission’

I am writing in support of David Luschen as a candidate for La Plata Electric Association in District 4.

David is committed to LPEA’s mission of “safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost while being environmentally responsible.” David believes that local, renewable energy gives us greater control of our energy costs, freedom from a third-party energy supplier, and resilience against supply and demand spikes.

According to the website of David’s opponent, “Tri-State’s carbon reduction goals are more aggressive in scope and timeline than the carbon reduction goal of LPEA.” Having served on LPEA for three years, I can say that this is far from the truth. Yes, Tri-State has made gains in adding renewable energy to their mix, but they have done so kicking and screaming. I believe moving on from Tri-State is the best move for obtaining more local and renewable energy.

Additionally, David has 26 years of utility experience with an engineering background. Having someone with prior knowledge and years of experience in the electric field will only better our cooperative.

Please join me in voting for David Luschen for LPEA board of directors!
