"Jim was selected for the working group because of his expertise in the electric industry and provided valuable input to both city staff and Boulder’s City Council. He was very committed to this effort and provided insights that influenced the analysis and decisions regarding the new electric utility. His ability to collaborate with other members of the working group, his vision for an electric utility of the future and his integrity to the governance process aided and added significant value to the contributions of the Working Group."
"Jim has been my most important contact in regional IEEE leadership over my many years as a founder and officer of the High Plains Section, in fact I got involved in leadership partly due do his encouragement. His wealth of knowledge about the IEEE organization and is programs enabled me to create my section and to fund some of its programs. As West Area Chair he has pro-actively checked on the status of my section and offered regional resources including organizing an effort of the Colorado sections to expand IEEE's appeal"
"I've had the pleasure of working with Jim for nearly 4 years on the IEEE Region 5 Executive Committee. Our mutual positions interacted constantly through the course of the tenure and I've always been impressed and comfortable with knowing that the task at hand would be completed correctly. I can't think of a better communicator and leader within IEEE to lead Region 5. Specifically, Jim is patient, reliable and understands the larger picture in his communications. These are all important traits in a volunteer organization that has a large focus on engineering students. Therefore, I endorse Jim for Region 5 Director."
"I had the pleasure to work with Jim on a number of projects and committees in IEEE. Jim is a highly dedicated volunteer and an accomplished professional, who is committed to IEEE. Jim delivers on his commitments and produces results."
"I have known Jim for a number of years and he has been unwavering in his commitment to IEEE and is a true leader at the Section, Region, and National levels. Not only is Jim great to work with, but his integrity is irrefutable. I was excited to hear that Jim is a candidate for the IEEE Region 5 Director Chair and cannot think of anybody who is more qualified or who IEEE could consider better suited for the position."
