Notice to Ratepayers:
GEID is aware of a recent anonymous mail out to various ratepayers, referencing an anonymous blog link. GEID believes that this article was written by a disgruntled employee or rate payer who is using this forum as a means to discredit the Board of Trustees without a factual basis.
All of the five elected Trustees undertake their roles and responsibilities with utmost importance and integrity. The Staff and Trustees value the trust and responsibility that the rate ratepayers bestow upon us, to fulfill the mandate of GEID. The information relating to the complex decisions we have to make on a daily basis is available to you. Documents pertaining to Trustee remuneration, as well as many other issues, are publicly available documents. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact GEID, where we would be pleased to provide you with a better understanding of our operations and answer any questions or concerns in a transparent, open manner.
On behalf of the ratepayers, the Trustees would like to thank our Chair, Steven Bonn, for the leadership role he was delegated to fill on many occasions during the past 2 years in the absence of effective senior management leadership.
Recently, the Board of Trustees hired Dawn Williams as our Administrator. With less than 2 months at GEID, Dawn has already demonstrated her effectiveness and competence as a leader who shares the same vision and values for the District as the Board of Trustees. The Trustees are looking forward to a bright future for GEID, with Dawn at the helm. We welcome you to come and introduce yourself to her or connect with any of us personally.
