Bergren announces candidacy for Chelan County PUD District #3

CHELAN FALLS - Carnan Bergren, a lifelong resident of Chelan County, retired fruit grower and past Chelan County PUD Commissioner has officially announced his intentions to file for election to the Chelan County PUD Commission District 3, presently held by Ann Congdon of Chelan.

Carnan Bergren 67, was elected to the Chelan PUD Commission in 2008 and again in 2012 serving consecutive four-year terms. After a 42-year fruit growing career, Carnan and his wife June purchased a home in Chelan Falls where they now reside.

In addition to his past service as Commissioner to Chelan PUD, Carnan has also served on the board of Commissioners in the Washington Public Utility District Association (WPUDA) and General Board of Directors of Energy Northwest.

In addition, Carnan has served fruit growers as a Board member of Peshastin Fruit Growers, Leavenworth Fruit Co. and the Washington/Oregon Canning Pear Association. Carnan has also served as a member of the Peshastin Sub Urban Area Task Force, the Peshastin Library, Cemetery and Community Water District, the Washington State Farm Bureau, the Leavenworth Rotary Club and is a current member of Samaritan Riders of Washington (a charitable motorcycle group).

I have gained valuable experience that uniquely qualifies me to serve once again as your Chelan PUD Commissioner. I voted for and supported the districts present course in reducing its long-term debt and during my time in office worked hard to help develop the district’s forward surplus energy sales program.  I believe in a balanced approach in maintaining a predictable path forward. When elected, I personally pledge to come prepared each day to work with my fellow Commissioners and staff towards preserving low rates and least cost utility services that complement the environment and quality of life in Chelan County.
