Members select Board candidates at district meetings
Co-op members gathered at three trustee district meetings this month to select candidates for the co-op’s Board of Trustees in Districts 1, 8 and 9.
Incumbents Carl Hagglund (District 1), Jo Ann R. Smith (District 8) and Karen Hastings (District 9) were all nominated without any qualified opposition.
Each year, three positions on the co-op’s nine-member Board of Trustees are up for election. Members within the respective districts select one or two members to be candidates, and then the entire membership votes for trustees. Voting for the seats up for election will take place by absentee ballot only this year. Members may request a ballot beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
All members who vote by absentee ballot will be placed in a drawing contest to win a 2016 Ford Fusion from the co-op’s fleet or one of 42 statement credits. The results of the election will be announced on Clay Electric’s website on March 18 and at the Annual Meeting gathering of the members on Saturday, March 26.
