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

If ever there were the perfect candidate for an elected position, it is Jeff Bender for the TDPUD Board of Directors. As a professional mechanical engineer with strong interests in efficient energy, green energy, and water quality, Jeff has genuine qualifications for the job.

Mr. Bender’s credentials make him a huge asset to both the TDPUD board and the community at large. He has our interests at heart and his track record, including past presidency of the board for two years, speaks for itself.

A quick review of his accomplishments as a board member leaves no doubt in my mind that Jeff is an obvious choice for reelection to the TDPUD Board of Directors. Jeff is much more than an engineer however. Not only is he an incredible pet owner, he is a member of our community and is committed to it for the long-term as evidenced by the fact that he is raising his family right here in town and faces the same day-to-day challenges we all do.

With Jeff on the board we have seen our electrical rates hold steady all the while increasing our renewables from 8 to 40 percent. The quality of the water we drink has improved since Jeff has been on the board. Jeff’s family drinks the same water we do and gets power from the same lines we all do, but he actually knows how it all works and cares enough to make a difference.

Please join me in wholeheartedly supporting Jeff Bender’s candidacy for reelection to the TDPUD Board of Directors.
