As we are all aware, the DMEA board of directors election is imminent and choices must be made to select candidates who will best represent the interests of both the citizens and the cooperative. After reading the DMEA "Board of Directors Policy" and letters/information from prospective applicants, it is apparent that David White is the ideal person to help lead DMEA in the critical times ahead. From his college days through his many years in the private and public sectors, David has displayed a desire to develop leadership qualities and excel in every endeavor. His extensive experience includes business in the transportation/marketing industry, positions in Colorado Springs and Montrose city/county government, and participation in local service organizations.

However, above and beyond all of his practical experience, is the man I came to know and admire by working with him on a number of local projects; I have seen, first hand, how David approaches commitments and tackles difficult problems. He has the ability to gather/process immense quantities of information, rationally analyze situations, and form reasoned conclusions, based on his research and input from constituents/co-workers, free from prejudice or undue influence. David is one of those rare individuals who can manage his considerable family responsibilities, work commitments, and public service with continued enthusiasm and tireless energy, constantly determined to contribute to our common good in any way possible. Above all, David White is an honorable, ethical person who can be trusted with the important issues that will impact our future. I urge you to give David the opportunity to serve us on the DMEA board.
