Manager’s Message – December 2022

Happy Holidays From Your Dedicated PUD


Roger KlineAs I reflect on this past year, I appreciate the people with whom I have the pleasure of working and serving each day. People keep the power flowing, and we are primarily here to serve them.

On that note, your people’s utility district is governed by a dedicated and compassionate board of directors. As we bid a fond farewell to Directors Howard Gonser and Connie Karp, we reflect on their almost 40 years of combined service. We appreciate their hard work and dedication to serving our community.

We are equally appreciative and ready to welcome new Directors Scott Taylor and Dan Hammel to the district. We look forward to supporting them with knowledge transfer and whatever else they need to best represent their constituents as PUD directors.

The policy and regional work the board supports and participates in has provided us with a positive vision for the future. The performance indicators they monitor continue to illustrate the excellence of the district. We accomplish all this work on your behalf safely and with the utmost dedication. Of that, I am very proud and appreciative.

Consider this my usual plug for energy audits and conservation measures as well. We strive to offer programs that everyone can use to lower their energy consumption and bills. Let me emphasize: Energy consumption—the amount you use—drives the amount of your bill. We strive to work with every customer if the need arises to make payment arrangements or provide other support. Please communicate with us during times of need. We want you to be safe and warm in your homes and businesses.

Best to all and happy holidays,

Roger Kline
