Supports Downen

Print Article

I support re-election of Jay Downen as trustee of the electricity cooperative upon which so many people have depended for so many years, and I urge all cooperative member/customers to do the same when casting their votes. I know Mr. Downen as a neighbor in Whitefish, but better I know him as an extraordinarily qualified person for managing our most essential energy resource in terms of reliability, service, prioritization of equipment maintenance and of new projects and consumer electricity rates. He has for decades devoted himself to the work of electric service cooperatives with education and experience levels likely unmatched, or nearly so, anywhere.

I am aware that Mr. Downen has personally and promptly assisted with off-hours outage recoveries when it appeared that his help would expedite matters; efforts like that are indicative of his devotion to having FEC provide the best possible round-the-clock service for all of its customers.

Parker Kelly, Whitefish
