Hoffman Candidate PhotoMy name is Steph and I am a VEC Co-op member. I live in Morristown with my husband, three step-children, two dogs, and a kitten.  I currently serve my community as an attorney for the state of Vermont. I also have private practice experience and critical experience regulating electric utilities, including the Co-op. In my capacity regulating electric utilities, I worked with members of the VEC Senior Leadership Team and acquired a deep understanding of the issues that Vermonters face as our electric use evolves and our system ages. Electric utility innovation is inevitable, and I believe we must responsibly fashion solutions to meet members’ needs in the face of an aging system.  We must maximize electric reliability for customers in a cost-effective manner. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns and my candidacy with you. Please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
