Work Experience

General Manager at Nushagak Electric and Telephone Cooperative in Dillingham, Alaska. January 2005 to present.

I manage a consolidated cooperative utility that generates and distributes electricity, provides telephone service, delivers cable television, and serves as the local internet service provider.

Nushagak Electric and Telephone Cooperative (NETC) has 34 fulltime employees allocated across three divisions, Electric, Telephone, and the non-regulated CATV and Internet Division.

Total combined annual revenues are approximately $12 Million derived from approximately $18 Million in various plant assets.

Under my direction NETC has continued to improve its’ CATV service, expanding our offering from 120 to 180 channels and incorporating some fiber backbone. The internet offering has seen cable modem controller upgrades as well as completion of the DSL service roll out. Our telephone service has been converted to new “soft switches” and is now CALEA compliant. Going forward more of our remote sites will be converted from satellite to microwave connectivity. I have continued with the power plant upgrade initiated before my arrival. We have placed four new generators on line during my tenure. I have successfully solicited $4 Million in grant funding for this project during the past three years. Next on our schedule is a hydro project estimated to cost @ $ 60 million. I will continue my lobbying and project documentation efforts in that direction.

NETC retains two lobbyists, one for State concerns and Federal power issues lobbying, and the other is contracted through membership in a small telecom group specifically for telecommunication related lobbying in Washington DC. I work closely with both, lobbying for company and industry related issues. Similarly I belong to and participate with several statewide and Federal industry associations in order to contribute to their lobbying efforts as well.
