Kevin Streett, General Manager
Joy Liechty, Assistant General Manager
Joy Liechty brings more than 25 years’ experience in the utility field throughout western Washington. She served in a variety of positions including wholesale contract administration, power trading and scheduling, and rates and analysis for Snohomish PUD and Puget Sound Energy, as well as Seattle City Light as Power Management Director. Liechty came to the PUD from Tacoma Power where she served as Energy Trading Manager. She oversaw the buying and selling of energy for 181,000 customers and 4 hydroelectric facilities operated by Tacoma Power. She holds a bachelor’s degree from WSU and a master’s in public administration from Seattle University. Liechty is Jefferson PUD’s second AGM since taking over the local electric grid in 2013. Kevin Streett was the first. The AGM’s duties include strategic planning; assisting the general manager with administrative and special projects; working with the PUD board of commissioners; and engaging with local, regional, and state partners. Jefferson County holds fond memories for Leichty. “Growing up, I loved visiting Port Townsend, exploring the beaches, forests and forts in the area,” said Liechty. “It was my dad’s hometown, and my grandfather even owned a jewelry store on Water Street.” She notes she couldn’t have predicted her career path would eventually return here but is very glad it has.
