Letter (Patricia Sussman): Nick Exline for STPUD

South Tahoe Public Utility District has two seats up for election this season and — even with presidents, senators and congressional representatives dominating the headlines — I may be most excited to vote Nick Exline for STPUD board.

It feels good to know I will get to vote for a local candidate who sees and clearly articulates so many possibilities for positive change in our community. Nick has been out and about at just about every public event to talk about STPUD policy and his platform — a main tenant of which is to work to keep water and sewer rates stable by encouraging the district to develop renewable energy sources for operations.

Identifying means to avoid rate hikes is generally sound economic policy, but even more important, finding ways to avoid fossil fuel as an energy choice should be a key task of every leader in this country if we are to avoid worst-case climate change scenarios.

I am proud to support a candidate that is finding a way to be the change we must see in the world. Nick is informed, interested, enthusiastic, a good listener and a friendly leader. He truly is solution oriented — the kind of candidate we need more of in our community, in our state and in our nation. Nick Exline for STPUD!
