In January 2022, Sangre de Cristo Electric Association (SDCEA) withdrew a proposed rate restructure following strong member objections, but this March, the board proposed another similar rate restructure. When the CEO of SDCEA abruptly resigned shortly before the March 29 meeting, the board tabled the vote on the rate proposal, scheduling three “listening sessions” for members to address the board regarding the rate restructuring proposal, which yet again had no member input during its creation as was promised in 2022.

As members of SDCEA since 2004, we believe there’s need for change in our elected SDCEA board. With your help, we elected two new board members last year. Now candidates Jeff Fiedler and Mark Boyle are running for two more SDCEA board positions. Jeff and Mark are active in our community and are highly qualified to lead SDCEA in the electricity future. Jeff serves as a Lake County commissioner and has decades of clean energy and climate policy experience, while Mark is a retired engineer with 40 years in the power generation industry and is a local farmer.
