SIX CANDIDATES FILE FOR NOMINATING COMMITTEE INTERVIEWS FOR CHUGACH ELECTRIC 2006 BOARD ELECTION

Chugach Consumers
Jan. 31, 2006

January 27 was the deadline for candidates who want to go before the Nominating Committee for ballot placement. Others still have until February 24 to gather 50 valid names and be nominated by petition. Those filing by Friday's deadline are:

Ray Kreig*, former Chugach board president.
Dave Ausman, chairman of Chugach Bylaws Committee.
Jim Henderson, Girdwood member.
Mike Koy, Democratic candidate for House district 32.
Jeff Lipscomb*, former Chugach board president.
Jim Nordlund, former representative, West Anchorage
(Democrat); campaign manager, Fran Ulmer for governor.

* INCUMBENT: Current Chugach boardmember

Kreig and Ausman have been active in Chugach Consumers efforts advocating for Safe, Reliable and low cost power in South Central Alaska. The interest of Jim Henderson and Mike Koy in Chugach is not known to us at this time. We expect the IBEW Union to finance a massive campaign on behalf of Jeff Lipscomb and Jim Nordlund.

IMPORTANT: Information in this message is for background only. Chugach Consumers will not make any endorsements until after the final filing deadline on February 24 and all candidates are known and can be evaluated.
