CENTURIA – Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative will hold an election this spring for board directors serving co-op districts 7, 8 and 9. All co-op members in those districts have an opportunity to vote by mail or online. Ballots and voting instructions were mailed April 30.
“Democratic member participation is one of the greatest advantages of a co-op membership,” said General Manager Steve Stroshane.
As a cooperative, Polk-Burnett is owned by its members and governed by a board of directors elected from its membership. Board directors serve a three-year term and attend monthly meetings to guide policy and budget decisions for Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative.
- District 7 includes the Webb Lake, Scott, Jackson, Chicog, Casey and Rusk townships. Incumbent director Maury Miller of Danbury is running unopposed.
- District 8 includes Swiss, Oakland, Union, Meenon and Sand Lake townships. Incumbent director Chuck Brookshaw of Webster is running unopposed.
- District 9 includes Marshland, Lincoln, Grantsburg, Wood River, Daniels, Siren, Anderson and Trade Lake townships. Incumbent director Tom Swenson of Webster is running unopposed.
Election results will be announced at the co-op’s 80th annual meeting at Polk-Burnett’s Centuria office June 8.
