Upcoming election for the AEC Board of Directors
The deadline for a director candidate to submit petitions was May 18th.
Anza Electric Cooperative, Inc. is governed by seven directors representing three districts of the cooperative's service area. Four seats on the Anza Electric Cooperative Board of Directors are open for election this year. Districts I,II and III each have one seat available for a three-year term. The Director-at-Large seat is available for a one-year term.
AEC's democratically elected Board of Directors is responsible for setting policy for and the governance of the only electric distribution cooperative in Southern California. Directors are committed to policies that result in a safe and reliable electric system, fair rates, financial responsibility and superior member service.
Each year, eligible AEC members can seek nomination for director positions up for election through the petition process established by the AEC Bylaws requiring thirty valid member signatures.
This year seven valid petitions were accepted and the following individuals will be listed on this year's ballot.
Stephen Silkotch, Sr.
Since only one valid petition was received for both Districts I and II, Diane Sieker will be seated for District I and Harold Burdick will be seated for District II, each for a three-year term based on AEC bylaw, Article IV, section 4(e) stating that:
In the event petitions are received for only the number of Directors to be elected and the Secretary determines the petitions in order and the candidate qualified, no further election process shall be held and those candidates nominated shall be elected as Directors at the annual meeting.
Election materials will be arriving in member's mailboxes and email in the next few weeks.
