Co-op members will gather at three trustee district meetings Jan. 29-Feb. 1 to select candidates for the co-op’s board of trustees in Districts 3, 5 and 7.
Incumbents in the positions are Susan Reeves (District 3), Dewitt Hersey (District 5) and John Henry Whitehead (District 7).
- District 7 (all of Columbia, Union and Suwannee counties): Monday, Jan. 29, Lake Butler Community Center in Lake Butler
- District 3 (parts of Alachua and Putnam counties): Tuesday, Jan. 30, Windsor Baptist Church in Windsor
- District 5 (all of Baker and Bradford counties): Thursday, Feb. 1, Sampson City Church of God in Starke
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. 29 in Keystone Heights.
Registration at all meetings begins at 6 p.m., with the meetings beginning at 7 p.m. Along with the nomination of trustee candidates from the membership, GM/CEO Ricky Davis will inform members on the state of the cooperative and show a video recap of the events of 2017.
Members who cannot attend the cooperative’s Annual Meeting can vote on the candidates by mail. Beginning February 21, members can request a mail ballot. More information about voting by mail will be provided in the February Kilowatt newsletter.
