SEAPA CEO talks about services, communication

Part of SEAPA’s public outreach effort includes these banners, which were on display during a recent SEAPA board meeting in Ketchikan.

Officials with the Southeast Alaska Power Agency are working on ways to improve the agency’s image, and get information to the public about what SEAPA does and why they believe maintaining the agency is important.

To that end, the agency’s CEO, Trey Acteson, scheduled a series of presentations during the most recent SEAPA board meeting in Ketchikan. It was challenging, though, for radio reporters to record that meeting for news stories. SEAPA refused to provide its own recording of that public meeting, but Acteson did agree to come in to KRBD April 30 to talk about the agency.

During the interview, Acteson covered a broad range of topics, from the issue of divestiture to improving communication between SEAPA and the communities it serves. Here is an excerpt from that discussion.

That was SEAPA CEO Trey Acteson talking with KRBD April 30. Acteson declined to give details on the record about misinformation in news stories that he says he has had to correct.

Here is a longer version of that interview:
