On behalf of of the entire Buckeye Rural Electric Cooperative staff, thank you to our members for another successful annual meeting--our 80th! A nod to the Lyne Center and the University of Rio Grande for hosting close to 1000 people for a day of fun, family, and fellowship.
As promised, the board election votes have been counted and verified by the Wellston-based law firm of Oths, Heiser, and Miller. We appreciate the patience of our membership for allowing us to make sure that the votes were checked, re-checked, and checked again.
Congratulations to incumbents Dennis Blakeman, who will continue to represent District III (Jackson County), and Bill Holcomb, who carries on his board duties for District IV (Athens, Meigs, and Vinton counties). Finally, our gratitude to David Lester of District I (Lawrence County) who concludes a successful run on the Buckeye Rural Electric Cooperative board of trustees, most recently as president. David's distinguished service and insight served our co-op well for 30 years.
By a margin of three votes, we offer our congratulations and welcome Jim Herrell to the board, who's been elected to represent District I.
The BREC management and staff is looking forward to working with both our new and tenured board members to provide outstanding service to BREC's 18,660 members. Further information about the annual meeting will be forthcoming in future Ohio Cooperative Living magazine articles and at www.buckeyerec.com. ... See MoreSee Less
