Virgil Turner, a former Montrose police officer, is currently an administrative services director for the City of Montrose. I have known Virgil for over 25 years and have always appreciated his thoughtful and open-minded approach to any issue.
His honesty, level headedness, business sense and community spirit will make him an asset on the DMEA board.
He strongly believes that improved energy efficiency is needed. One thing he hopes to do is assist both individuals and businesses in having audits of their facilities to discover ways they can make improvements which will save them money in operational costs. He feels it is important to encourage and instruct DMEA members in methods that can save them money, such as adding insulation, caulking around windows, etc.
Virgil believes we must pursue ways to increase renewable energy as well as improving energy efficiency. He supports using the abundant solar and hydro resources that we have to help keep electric rates low, but at the same time be of benefit to the environment. His personal background in the areas of computers and technology would be a tremendous asset to the board.
Virgil Turner is a great choice for the DMEA board. He has been a valuable addition to the Western Slope area since 1984. His involvement in youth and community activities over the past 28 years speaks to his commitment to serving the community. I encourage you to take the time to vote for Virgil Turner when you receive your ballots in the mail on May 21.
