Pedernales Electric Cooperative members are invited to the Co-op’s annual meeting June 21 in Cedar Park. The meeting and related activities will be held at the Leander ISD South Performing Arts Center, located on the Cedar Park High School Campus at 2150 Cypress Creek Road.
At the annual meeting, PEC members will be able to participate in informative and engaging activities, meet with Co-op staff, make statements to the Board and attendees, and receive reports regarding the Cooperative’s activities and initiatives. Members also will have an opportunity to cast their ballots in the 2014 PEC election and to hear election results.
Doors open for member registration and election voting at 8 a.m. A variety of family-friendly activities and informational booths are scheduled to open at 8:30 a.m, with the official annual business meeting beginning at 10:30 a.m. PEC election results will be announced during the business meeting.
In this year’s election, PEC members will vote on their preference of a voting system for future director elections, and also to elect directors from Board districts 2 and 3. The election system referendum was called for by the Co-op’s Board to provide PEC members the option to vote on their preference between the Co-op’s current at-large system of voting and a single-member district voting system.
In the director election, Co-op members will select from the following candidates, listed here in ballot order:
· District 2: Emily Pataki, Cedar Park; William D. (Bill) Boggs, Leander
· District 3: Judy Lawler Pokorny, Cedar Park; Kathryn Scanlon, Austin; Arnold LeVine, Austin; Don Zimmerman, Austin
Members registering at the meeting prior to 10:30 a.m. and remaining for the duration of the business meeting will have a chance to win door prizes, including:
· A retired PEC pickup truck
· An iPad and Apple TV (combo prize)
· An energy-efficient smart TV
· A laptop computer and Nest thermostat (combo prize)
Meeting registration and member voting close at 10:30 a.m. Complete PEC election and annual meeting information is available at www.pec.coop.
