I am honored to currently serve our members as a Director of NineStar and would look forward to continue working with NineStar directors, CEO, and executive staff with the goal of our members having the highest quality of life by providing you with the best utility services in electric, fiber, water and wastewater. We are experiencing economic growth and with it comes challenges as we continue to invest in infrastructure and working through opportunities in serving our members best with the increase in the use of electric vehicles. I believe it is critical that we invest in technologies that give us the most reliable electric power, safe and secure internet, clean water, and wastewater services at the most affordable cost to each of us. Long term strategic planning is essential to NineStar’s success keeping financial sustainability as a priority. I look forward to the opportunity to represent you as a Director for District 7.
