Derek Miller for GVEA

  • Comments

To the editor: I have worked with Derek Miller in different capacities for 15 years. I have found him to be willing to listen to and work with anyone. He is clearly not afraid of hard work. I have also found him to be thoughtful and careful, but willing to make decisions needed to make things move forward. He is a sincere individual and a genuine Alaskan.

Derek is solidly vested in our community and is willing and able to help lead Golden Valley Electric Association.

I encourage Fairbanks to support his campaign by voting him onto the GVEA Board of Directors.
