At long last I am finally transitioning the website from campaign mode to a mechanism I plan to use to share information, solicit feedback and input, and generally keep folks up to date throughout my six years in office. It will be a work in progress for a few months as I navigate and test my way through what works and what doesn't so feel free to offer suggestions!
I have two board meetings under my belt, but those meetings are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to recent OPPD activities. Over the past three months I've attended several OPPD board member orientations (with my new colleague Rick Yoder), met with all of my other colleagues on the board at least once, been reading incessantly, held several meetings with OPPD management, staff, and union leaders, and met and/or talked with many members of the public about a variety of issues. I've learned much but still have a lot to learn.
If you have any thoughts, comments or questions regarding OPPD at any time, please don't hesitate to reach out. Email is probably best, but phone calls work as well. I'll do my best to respond in a timely manner, obtain whatever information you're after, and work with OPPD staff to get answers to questions.
So, off we go! I'm quite excited and honored about this opportunity, and I'll work hard to ensure OPPD is headed in the right direction. It's a fascinating time in the energy industry, and I'm looking forward to making a positive difference.
Onward and upward!
