Statement: “It has been an honor to serve as District 2 Director. I’m proud of Board decisions allowing RGEC to grow. While we’d, like to take full credit, the truth, it’s a joint effort. The Board makes the big financial decisions, but Management and Staff keep the lights on. COVID-19 presented challenges. Members were financially struggling. Last year, we voted YES for a Relief Credit to your accounts. February’s snow storm hit hard. Other cooperatives were declaring bankruptcy and passing exuberant charges to their members, RGEC held steady. I’m proud of RGEC.. I humbly ask for your vote.”
