TCEC trustees remain the same CEO VIEW TCEC BOARD DISTRICTS


Continued from page one Adopted March 2012


Your cooperative’s trustees (fellow members, by the way) have only one thing in mind: keeping lights on safely, reliably and keeping costs affordable in our local community. That’s why you elected them. And that’s what is so great about cooperatives.


These days, Americans from all walks of life have come to recognize the cooperative approach—members working together to achieve price and service benefits—can work for other needs just as effectively as it delivered affordable power to rural Americans.


TCEC TRUSTEES FOR DISTRICTS 1, 5 AND 7 REMAIN THE SAME FOLLOWING MEETINGS THAT WERE HELD IN JULY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE COOPERATIVE’S BYLAWS.


T


CEC hosted meetings in districts 1, 5 and 7 the week of July 21 to hold elections for the board of trustees in accordance with the bylaws of the cooperative. TCEC’s trustees did not change.


Te only individuals filing for districts 1 and 5 were the incumbent trustees, Jimmie L. Draper in District 1 and Joe Mayer in District 5. In District 7, those filing for election were incumbent Shawn Martinez and TCEC member Dean Bishop. Any member who meets the trustee qualifications outlined in the cooperative’s bylaws can file for candidacy in their district during its filing period.


A quorum was not reached at the district 1, 5 and 7 meetings, therefore no business could take place. Te 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. In accordance with the bylaws, Shawn Martinez was declared the trustee for district 7 for a term of three years.


Te trustees for districts 1, 5 and 7 are: „ District 1: Jimmie L. Draper „ District 5: Joe Mayer „ District 7: Shawn Martinez


“District meetings are a great example of the local control that makes cooperatives different from other utilities,” said CEO Jack Perkins. “Democratic member control is one of our cooperative values. Members are urged to attend and participate in their cooperative’s meetings.”

In these days of economic turmoil, folks who receive electricity from cooperatives are lucky. As locally owned and operated businesses, electric cooperatives understand the people they serve. Trustees and employees at your cooperative share the same values and have the same pride of place as you do because it is our community, too. We act like neighbors because we are neighbors.


That’s the cooperative difference. „
