My Vision for Our PUD

Better services for a better Whatcom County

Christine Grant ProfilePublic Utility Districts throughout the state are innovating to serve their communities through cheaper and cleaner power, responsible water stewardship, and widespread access to affordable high speed internet.

But here in Whatcom county, our PUD has fallen decades behind. This must  change .

Common to every successful public utility I’ve worked with is a commitment to evolve.  Water, electricity, and fast, affordable internet are building blocks for economic success.

I am an industry expert and passionate about improving these services for our community.  Please join me for a better Whatcom County PUD.

 Because our PUD  matters .
