1. Personal experience you feel relates to the position of the trust’s seat: I have been an active board member of two different non-profit organizations.  I have over 28 years experience with an electric cooperative that was well managed. I have worked with diverse groups to facilitate agreements on process and procedure.

District 1 members need an available trustee they can be confident in representing them to the Socorro Electric Cooperative.

3. What are the most pressing and immediate needs of SEC? The most pressing immediate need of SEC is to find ways of reducing the cost of supplied power to the members.  Another rate increase is coming.

4. Why are you the right person for the seat?
I have no connection to the corrupt cronies who now populate the SEC Board of Trustees therefore I will only ever act in the best interest of District 1 members.

5. What needs to change?
The makeup of the Board of Trustees must change so that the focus becomes SEC membership rather than how the Trustees can spend money protecting and furthering their own personal interests.

6. Have you ever been arrested for or convicted of a DWI or felony? I have never been arrested for or convicted of DWI or any other felony.
