EWEB to interview 2 candidates.
Eugene Water & Electric Board commissioners will interview two applicants tonight who are seeking appointment to the board's at-large position.
Allan Gubrud, a retired teacher and builder, and Paul Conte, a software developer, consultant and author, will be interviewed during a special board meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the board room at EWEB headquarters.
The board chose the two from among 14 applicants for the seat vacated earlier this year by three-term Commissioner Susie Smith, who stepped down early to spend more time on other obligations.
The appointee will serve through the end of this year. In January, Commissioner Sandra Bishop will move into the at-large position. She won the seat in a two-way race with Commissioner Peter Bartel in last month's primary election.
Gubrud developed and taught in the energy management technician program at Lane Community College, helping train many people who now work in the energy conservation field in the Northwest. He also served on a state advisory board for environmental education.
A 53-year resident of Eugene, Gubrud built three Super Good Sense homes, including two with solar water heating, in recent years.
Conte, a 25-year Eugene resident, has worked more than 15 years consulting on software development practices with private and public enterprises. He has written five books on IBM and Microsoft database technology.
Conte previously owned a small software company, which he sold, and is the former vice chairman of the Westside Neighborhood Quality Project.
