“This month’s Watts & Volts newsletter is my last opportunity to communicate with all of the patrons in District 3. As you may know, I recently decided to not run for another term on IREA’s board of directors.

The association has seen many changes and improvements in the past years, and it has been a privilege to have been a very small part of those changes.

Thank you all for supporting the association. Thanks also to the other board members, an outstanding group of employees and past CEO Pat Mooney for the support provided over the years.

I will miss the camaraderie and being a part of the future progress of the association.”

Gene Sperry served for more than 30 years as director of District 3, which includes Florissant, Lake George, Hartsel, Larkspur, Woodland Park, Palmer Lake, and south Jefferson County.
