In a statement from Keith Woods, on his campaign website “Keith For SRP“:
Delivering clean, affordable, reliable water and power to our neighborhoods, businesses, and non-profit organizations has been my goal for more than 20 years of service, as your SRP Board Director, and before that as an SRP Councilman. Because it is those things that make up the fabric of successful, vibrant communities.
Delivering clean, affordable, reliable water and power to our neighborhoods, businesses, and non-profit organizations has been my goal for more than 20 years of service
Now, it’s more important that ever for homeowners, businesses, and non-profit organizations to have experienced utility leaders, that are committed to community engagement, and have the vision to carry this public utility through the many changes in store; decommissioning coal fired power plants. promoting further advancements in solar generation, battery storage, smart grid technologies, and creating support systems for deluge of electric vehicles. All while keeping the costs of electricity low, as well as the supply of water for households, municipalities, and farmers.
I believe that I have the leadership, experience and vision to continue the reputation of utility excellence at Salt River Project, and would greatly appreciate your vote in the special Salt River Project Election on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.
