Co-op members gathered at three trustee district meetings in late January-early February to select candidates for the co-op’s board of trustees in Districts 2, 4 and 6.
Incumbents Kelley Smith (District 2), Carl Malphurs (District 4) and Jimmy Wilson (District 6) were all nominated without 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 for the board of trustees. These candidates are voted upon by all members who attend and register to vote at the Annual Meeting, which will be held Thursday, Mar. 30 in Keystone Heights.
Members who cannot attend the cooperative’s Annual Meeting can vote on the candidates by mail. Beginning February 22, members can request a mail ballot. More information about voting by mail will be provided in the March Kilowatt newsletter.
