Nothing will change in terms of the Chelan PUD unless people with new ideas get out to the meeting at the PAC on June 11, 5:30 pm and force some new thinking.

Do we really need to spend more money on parks and recreation?  Should the PUD be spending its money on water and sewer systems? Can they ever break even on anything dealing with telecommunication systems?

I hope people will attend the meeting and encourage more innovation rather than agreeing with the Chelan PUD to continue doing the same thing with greater expenditures. Too often these meetings are nothing more than going through a process with positive feelings but little change.

Why isn’t the PUD doing more to encourage technical and environmental education? Why isn’t the PUD driving a fleet of electric or plug in hybrid cars? The PUD could encourage solar and sell more hydro power on the market and make even more money. The PUD could bring about real change by working to do more in terms of educating our students. There are many innovative options for the PUD but they are stuck with the same old ideas.

Go to the meeting and speak up. This meeting needs to be more than a good feeling. Change won’t come unless you get involved.  Get acquainted with the people running for the commissioner positions and vote in positive change.
