Edland represents new opportunity for FEC board

| March 24, 2021 1:00 AM

It’s refreshing to see a motivated, smart and young native son return to the Flathead and throw his hat in the ring for the Flathead Electric Co-Op Board of Directors. As a sixth generation Montanan, Curran Edland intends to be the type of energy leader that we need for the 21st Century.

After graduating from Whitefish High School, Edland got an engineering degree in Pittsburgh. Upon his return to the Flathead, he was an Energy Corps AmeriCorps member, where he further developed his knowledge about clean and reliable power grids.

I commend the FEC Board for its support of local power generation and energy efficiency over the years, and I appreciate the leadership of Jay Downen. But this is a great opportunity to add some new blood to the FEC Board.

Please send in your FEC ballot and join me in voting for Curran Edland.

Steven Thompson, Whitefish
