Cooperative welcomes new district 6 trustee Incumbent trustees for districts 3, 4 and 9 to continue service


T


ri-County Electric Cooperative’s Board of Trustees recently appointed Larry Dunn of Elkhart, Kan., to fill the vacant position on the Board representing District 6. District 6 includes the town of Elkhart and extends south into Oklahoma. It has about 1,100 cooperative members.


“Larry Dunn expressed interest in being on the cooperative’s Board of Trustees during an advisory vote for his district,”


Tri-County Electric CEO Jack Perkins said. “With his vast cooperative experience, the Board of Trustees felt he was well qualified to represent our cooperative’s members.” Dunn is a native of Morton County, having grown up in Richfield and having lived in Elkhart since the 1970s. He was the general manager of the Elkhart Co-op Equity Exchange for more than twenty years before retiring. He now farms near Elkhart. Dunn’s family includes his wife Martha and their two grown daughters and three grandchildren. “My experience managing a cooperative will help me to serve the members of my district,” Dunn said. “I understand the


cooperative difference very well. And, although I stay busy farming, I have ample time to devote to the cooperative’s Board.” Dunn is now a member of Tri-County Electric’s nine-member Board of Trustees, serving the remainder of a three-year term


which expires at the annual meeting in 2013. Tri-County Electric Cooperative held district meetings the week of July 30 to elect trustees for Districts 3, 4 and 9 in accordance with the cooperative’s Bylaws. Elected trustees serve a three-year term. Only incumbents filed for candidacy in districts 3 and 9. The cooperative’s Bylaws state


in the event a quorum cannot be obtained, the trustee serving the district shall be declared the trustee from that district for a term of three years. A quorum of the membership was not present at either meeting, therefore no elections were held. District 3 trustee Ronny White and District 9 trustee Larry Hodges will continue their service on the board. District 4 had filings for candidacy from Darrell Grandy and incumbent C.J. Mouser. A quorum was present at the meeting thus


allowing for a vote to occur. C.J. Mouser was elected to continue his district 4 representation. “The second cooperative principle is ‘Democratic Member Control’ and trustee elections are one way this is carried out,”


said Tri-County Electric CEO Jack Perkins. “District meetings are a great example of the local control that sets us apart from investor-owned utilities.”
