Letter to the Editor: Vote for Jeff Bender for Truckee Donner PUD board

A professional engineer, a person with passion for green energy and sustainability, a successful local business owner, a community volunteer … this is Jeff Bender, and I am excited that I will be able to cast my vote for him to be re-elected as a member of the Board of Directors for the Truckee Donner PUD.

It’s Jeff’s enthusiasm for green energy and fiscal responsibility that will keep our local utility district on the right track. Jeff has a keen understanding of the needs of our unique community and regularly volunteers his time to ensure that Truckee stays beautiful and “green.”

As a current TDPUD board member, Jeff has a proven track record that has become increasingly important during these times of economic hardship and community growth. Many families would struggle even further if it weren’t for his responsible decision making to keep utility rates stable over the past several years.

I vote for sustainability, fiscal responsibility and community. I vote for Jeff Bender.
