01/08/2018: "Peter Garlock Appointed To OPALCO Board"


ig_Peter_Garlock-001 (51k image)Peter Garlock of Lopez Island joins the OPALCO Board of Directors in February, 2018 to fill the vacancy created by Jim Lett upon his retirement. The OPALCO Board appointed Garlock to the position at the December board meeting.

The volunteer member Election & Governance Committee (EGC) reviewed four applications for the vacancy. All candidates were interviewed by the EGC and also by the Board.

Garlock has nearly 40 years experience managing and leading large technology organizations. He currently serves as the Director of Information Technology for the Port of Seattle. He and his wife divide their time between Seattle and Lopez Island. Garlock earned his MBA and served in the US Air Force.

“As a part-time resident,” said Garlock, “I will bring an important perspective to the Board. I believe this large group of members is currently under-represented. In addition, I bring substantial experience in delivering business, technology and process solutions to complex requirements in a public sector and represented labor environment.”

Garlock will serve until the next District 3 (Lopez, Decatur, Center and Charles islands) election in 2019, at which time he intends to run for the position.

Orcas Power & Light Cooperative (OPALCO) is our member-owned cooperative electric utility, serving more than 11,000 members on 20 islands in San Juan County. OPALCO provides electricity that is 95% greenhouse-gas free and is generated predominantly by hydroelectric plants. OPALCO was founded in 1937. Follow OPALCO @OrcasPower on Facebook and Twitter.
