The annual meeting was held at our Jacksonville office in the Community Room on Thursday, June 30, at 10 a.m. The event was lightly attended, however, we had good news to share with those in the crowd. I’m pleased to announce the results from the 2022 Director Election at First Electric.

This year we had two very qualified candidates from our Perryville district running for Position 1. Both have a long history of public service in their communities and strong business backgrounds. The race was extremely tight, and when the votes were counted, John Roland was announced the winner. We’re excited to have him join us on the board and begin his service to our membership.

I was also included on the ballot for Position 1 in the Jacksonville district. I am humbled and very grateful I was reelected to the board and will join John for a six-year term. I think I can speak for both of us when I say, we are appreciative of this opportunity to serve you – our members – and to be a part of a company whose mission is to “improve quality of life.”

At the meeting, we shared information about events that had transpired over the course of 2021 and looked toward the future. One of the events mentioned was the “Snowpocalypse” we experienced in February 2021. It’s an event many of us might not see again (hopefully)! On a brighter note, Connect2First connected our 1,000th customer in 2021, and we just connected our 5,000th customer as this column is going to press.

We have so many great things happening at the co-op! Keep connected with us – we have multiple channels to communicate different messages. We utilize various platforms for social media (Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube) for First Electric and Connect2First.

On behalf of the board, have a happy and safe summer!

Rick Love
