Point of View: Martin will offer ‘boots on the ground’ experience to HEA board

My primary goal as a Homer Electric Association board member will be to work with the other board members and management to construct and facilitate only the most effective and efficient projects and work toward reducing expenses which would hopefully result in reduced rates to the membership.

Over the last 20 years as a utility worker, I have worked from north of Anchor Point to Nanwalek, Port Graham to Bear Cove. I have a first hand knowledge of the areas that District 3 represents that is hard to rival. I have seen HEA project ideas come and go. I have seen some projects succeed and some fail. In reflecting on various projects, I consider the money and resources expended. Based on my “boots on the ground” utility experience, I feel that I could contribute to the decision making process with a focus on feasibility and efficiency.

As a member of several nonprofit organizations in Homer, I am constantly looking for ways to accomplish more with less and to reduce spending whenever possible. I believe that I will be able to carry this conservative attitude to the HEA board and put it to good use.

Greg Martin lives in Homer and is a candidate for the District 3 seat on the Homer Electric Association board of directors.
