Five of the seven candidates for Clark PUD were able to attend an open forum on Thursday June 28th.

Dave Campos, Sherry Ericksen, Jim Malinowski , Julia Anderson and Jim West had a good discussion about  the campaign so far and highlighted a few of the issues.

Renewable energy and I -937,  System development fees, Hydro power and it’s role  in our energy equation were all touched upon.




Off and Running

Filing week ended May 18th and as is tradition, Memorial Day weekend seems to signify the true kickoff of the local campaign season.  Signs are going up, events and fundraisers are in full bloom. Attended several myself this week. We have a great group of seven candidates for the PUD Commissioner # 1 position and I believe the primary will serve a good purpose in keeping the issue  of our future energy supply and costs and the vital role these play in a building a thriving economy and job growth.

Bring the Energy !

The 2012 PUD Commissioners race is all about Energy. 2012 will see us elect a President, a Governor, two County Commissioners, and send many new faces into our State legislature.

Don’t let the other races allow you to overlook how vital Electric energy is to our County and region, and how big an impact Clark PUD plays in our lives every day. While our first step is a relatively short campaign, the Commissioner position isn’t a 75 or 120 day job. It is a 6 year committment to the residents of Clark County to provide leadership to a 350 million dollar company of 300 people, in a complex and ever-changing world. That will take personal energy and stamina and a willingness to be continually learning.

The filings are now complete. We’ve got 7 good candidates and about 75 days, to decide who the final two will be to go into the General Election this fall. I’m looking forward to meeting as many of our Clark County citizens as I can during the process.
