My compliments and encouragement to the management of Central Virginia Electric Cooperative for their efforts to bring clean, renewable solar energy to its customers. It is refreshing to know that we consumer owners, our environment, and our health dictate CVEC’s long term strategies. I am pleased that we electric users in Fluvanna County are served by a not for profit, public cooperative that has the advantage of focusing on these needs rather than by a private utility whose sole motivating force is short term shareholder profit.

Cormier for Lake Board of Directors
Historically, most good leaders started as those who best served their communities and, as a result, their neighbors asked them to serve at a higher level. This is the community leader that I know Larry Cormier to be.
Larry spent a career at Dominion Power working his way up from a young helper, to leading hundreds of men and women and, after many years, retired from that same company. When his spiritual life grew, by his nature Larry worked to spread the blessings by not only serving as a teacher and on church council as chair, but he and his wife Paula moved to Africa for a year to work as missionaries. Today he serves as a very active volunteer for Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity and here at the Lake, on the golf committee. Larry is a doer, a worker. A first sign of his leadership typically comes from him being the first to pick up one end. He is a man of integrity, if he says it you can believe it. But still with such strong qualities, he is always humble with a warm smile, and a big heart.
I grew up at Lake Monticello, I raised my family here and I suspect at some point, my grandchildren will live here. I hope to protect what we have while seeing positive changes for our future and I believe that Larry is the perfect candidate to help make these things happen. If you live at Lake Monticello, won’t you please join me on June 25 at the Lake fire house, 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. to vote for Larry Cormier as our next Board of Directors member?
