To The Eagle:
I am writing to encourage your readers to join me in voting for Gene Healy as Wahkiakum PUD Commissioner, District #1. We need to retain Gene in this leadership position because of his experience, his ability and his decency.
I served with Gene on the Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church Council. Gene would always provide leadership by asking meaningful questions that brought our focus to the big picture and prompted insightful discussions. I was very pleased when Gene sought to serve our community by offering to complete Larry Reese’s term as PUD commissioner. The only reward he sought was that found in service to others.
Gene’s experience as a former manager in a major utility brings unique knowledge of operations and union relations to the leadership of our PUD. His focus is always on the objective of providing reliable and cost effective power and water service to our county. His interest is in bringing his utility experience to bear as a leader not a micro-manager.
Please allow Gene to continue to serve us as PUD Commissioner, District #1. Ballots will be mailed this Friday, October 19. Your vote is important.
