At its April 20 Board meeting in Johnson City, Pedernales Electric’s Board of Directors announced the 11 PEC members who have qualified to run in the upcoming Board election. Members will elect Directors for District 1, District 6 and District 7.
The order of candidates on the ballot was determined by a random drawing conducted by representatives of Election Services Corporation, the independent organization conducting PEC’s election. Listed by district and in the order they will appear on the ballot, the candidates are:
·Director, District 1: Mark A. Mayfield, Bill Wilcox, Cristi Clement and Sandra P. “Sandy” Jenkins
·Director, District 6: Theresa Rourke, Larry Landaker, Linda Kaye Rogers, Robbi Boone, David Bethancourt and Daryl Losaw

The event will begin at 6pm at the PEC Training Center, located at 1506 North U.S. Hwy 281 in Johnson City. Each candidate will have 2 minutes to address the audience on topics of their choice; the speeches will be filmed and the video posted to PEC’s web site. Following the addresses, members will have the opportunity to meet the candidates individually and ask questions.
