District #7

It has been a privilege to represent the MEC members in District 7 as a Trustee since 2016. Thank you for your support for me in this role.

My 39 years of experience in the energy business in Montana makes me well suited for the role as a Trustee. I will continue to focus on providing MEC members with service at fair and reasonable rates, while maintaining the overall stability of our Cooperative. As our energy industry changes, it is important that we evaluate opportunities and strategies that benefit our members. I am a proactive Board member currently involved with the following activities:

  • Current MEC Board Secretary/Treasurer
  • MEC Policy & By Law Committee Chairman
  • Western Montana Generation & Transmission Power Supply Committee Member
  • MEC Representative to the Energy Partners Board
  • NRECA Certified and Credentialed Training Completed

I would appreciate your vote for another 3 year term.
