WoodwardMark Woodward is running for re-election to the board of VEC. Currently serving as Secretary, he has been on the board for 10 years and a VEC member for 30. Mark has over 28 years of experience with non-profit organizations, serving on the boards of Copley Hospital, CHSLV, and Lamoille Home Health and Hospice. He also served 14 years in the Vermont State legislature. 

Mark enjoys balancing the need for fiscal conservatism with the need to upgrade the VEC’s meters, technology and other efficiencies. He is proud that rates have not increased in 4 years, and that VEC’s financial health has improved so that it now makes patronage payments to members. Grants have allowed the installation of smart meters and 24/7 monitoring technology. Cognizant of the increasing demand for solar, electric vehicles, and battery storage, hopeful that one day VEC will be on the forefront of facilitating high speed internet to all members, Mark’s experience and vision will be helpful as these challenges arise. 

Mark resides in Johnson, where he farms and manages Woodward Rental Properties. He would appreciate your vote, and the opportunity to continue to serve on the VEC board. Contact him at  635-7166 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
