Thank you Block Island for allowing me the opportunity to do my part in serving this great community. In my 35 years of working for electric utilities, I have never had such a rewarding experience or worked in such beautiful surroundings. I have worked for not-for-profit cooperatives since 2008 and our recent success in creating the Block Island Utility District is at the top of my career accomplishments. You own and govern the island’s electric utility now and together we will transform our energy future.
The purpose of this page if for me to share ideas for future innovation projects, new maintenance programs and future capital upgrades with you. I will also share my thoughts on state and national issues that impact small utilities such as ours. Please feel free to reach out to me to ask questions or make suggestions for future topics to discuss.
