To the editor:

We are writing this letter to voice our wholehearted support of Chuck Hofmann as a member of the OTEC Board of Directors.

Chuck possesses excellent business and electrical utility experience. He was the unanimous choice of the current board to fill a vacancy and he has been appointed to the OTEC Policy Committee. He has completed three national cooperative director courses and he has been appointed to the Oregon Electrical Coop Association's Government Affairs Committee. Since joining the board, OTEC has returned a record amount of capital credits to its members.

He has a successful medical practice that employs 14 people. He has significant experience in preparing and overseeing multimillion dollar budgets. He understands financial reports and utilizes them as a tool for decisions about future operations.

Chuck has proven his commitment to community through many years of service on the Baker City Council, as a committee member of the Adler Community Fund and on many other local, statewide and national organizations.

We are voting for Chuck Hofmann and we encourage all of you to do the same.

Richard & Kathleen Chaves
