Nominating Meetings Scheduled for February
District Nominating Meetings, where members can nominate fellow members or themselves to run in the 2018 board election, are scheduled.
Every member in attendance at their District Nominating Meeting will be entered in a random drawing. One member at each meeting will win a $100 cash prize.
The meetings will be held as follows:
Voting District 1 - February 13, 6pm - Braden Keller Community Center - 1410 Amelia Street in Castroville
Voting District 2 - February 14, 6pm - Sabinal Senior Citizen Center - 210 West Rheiner Avenue in Sabinal
Voting District 3 - February 15, 6pm - Ernesto J. Salinas Community Center - 917 North Main Avenue - in Mirando City
The voting districts are designated as follows:
Voting District 1 - Medina County
Voting District 2 - Real, Uvalde, Kinney, Edwards, Zavala, Frio and Atascosa Counties
Voting District 3 - Dimmit, La Salle, McMullen, Webb, Duval, Zapata, Jim Hogg, Brooks and Starr Counties
Voting district boundaries are drawn so there are approximately the same memberships per voting district. If you have meters in more than one voting district, please contact the cooperative to verify which District Nominating Meeting you should attend.
If you are interested in being nominated for a board position, be sure you meet all qualifications found in Article 4: Board of Directors of the Bylaws.
Directors are elected for the board each September and results are announced at the annual membership meeting. Directors actively participate in setting policies and making decisions for the cooperative. If you can not attend the nominating meeting, you can also be placed on the ballot through the petition process. Information on the steps to take to be placed on the board through that manner will be published in the March and April issues of Texas Co-op Power.
