Ballots for the Holy Cross Energy Board have hit your mailboxes, and some members of Eagle County will be voting for representatives in the Western Region. While the Holy Cross election is nonpartisan, we believe Western Region candidate Alex DeGolia’s values and priorities align with the Eagle County Democrats – supporting a clean energy transition, addressing climate change, providing leadership in those efforts in the region and more broadly, and supporting economic development.
In a statement from Mr. DeGolia:
A little bit about myself: I am deputy director of the Catena Foundation, a Carbondale-based family foundation where I manage our climate and clean energy program, which supports policy advocacy in Colorado and throughout the West. My first job after college was as a field organizer on the 2008 Obama for America campaign – I started as an intern in Chicago HQ in September 2007 and ended up working in half a dozen states over the next year. I then moved to DC to work in the first term of the Obama Administration, at the Commerce Department and White House. I left DC to attend graduate school, and completed a PhD in environmental policy in 2017. I moved to Carbondale three years ago with my wife, Tarn Udall, who grew up in Carbondale and is an attorney in Aspen at Holland & Hart. We welcomed our first child, a baby boy named Wallace, 10 weeks ago.
