I heartedly endorse Jock Fleming for the DMEA board of directors. I have known Jock since he came to Montrose over 30 years ago. He is a personal friend. He is also our family and corporate attorney, and we have benefited from his wise counsel. Jock has a long background of board service, including as a representative on the State Utility Consumers Board and as a member of the Montrose Planning Commission. I personally served with him for several years on the Montrose County School Board, where he was a thoughtful, collegial and responsible member of the board.
Jock's experience with the law, utilities, and finances will be a major help for DMEA's effort to gain energy independence from Tri-State. Electing Jock Fleming will help our electrical cooperative achieve their goal of using local resources to keep our electrical utility rates low and boost our community's economy. Please look for your ballot in the mail, vote for Jock Fleming, and return it before June 14.
