What's new Pat?
I am honored to have served on the KIUC Board for the past 3 years. This has been a challenging endeavor with some great rewards and some frustrating situations. During this time our Cooperative has made great strides in our pursuit of becoming less dependent on imported fossil fuels and increasing our self-reliance on cleaner energies. Solid fiscal management overseen by the Board, the increasing portfolio of sustainable energy production and low oil prices are creating the lowest energy prices since August of 2010 for Kauai. We are moving toward achieving our goals regarding decreasing the costs to members while increasing our clean energy production and have some needed member services improvements coming soon. More work needs to be done and new goals developed to keep us moving toward energy independence at a reasonable cost with member services that work for you. I humbly ask for your vote so I can continue representing you on the KIUC Board.
I have had the opportunity to further my education by becoming a Certified Credential Director with the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Educational programs and have achieved the highest level of certification by earning my Board Leadership Certificate.
I have 11 years of professional experience working in the energy field and had the pleasure of working as a School Counselor and Educator in the Kauai Schools for 5 years along with my other various pursuits.
