GVEA board nominations

Golden Valley is accepting nominations for board members in Districts 4 and 7, Fox and Chena Hot Springs Road and Nenana to Cantwell. The electric association is one place where people can make important changes in the direction of our energy production, right here in the Interior. GVEA has tied itself to oil and coal (remember the infamous "Clean Coal" project? ick), and paid a lot of lip service to alternative energy, but not actually done much to get us using wind or sun. Tom DeLong's election to the board last year was a hopeful sign of postive change, as was the introduction of the SNAP program, but it's just so little so late. We should have been doing this sort of thing 20 years ago.

And now, of course, we're paying the price, every month. Just think what we'll be paying in another 10 years if we don't get on the stick!
