District meetings coming up
District meetings for three of the nine voting districts of Cotton Electric Cooperative have been set for the purpose of electing trustees and for reports involving other business matters.
Members residing in Districts 1, 3 and 5 will receive mailed notices that will include information about the time, date and location of the meetings they should attend.
This year, the meeting schedule is as follows:
•District 1: Aug. 30 in the Life center at Velma Baptist Church
•District 3: Sept. 6 at Elgin Connection Church, 102 NE Windy Road
•District 5: Aug. 28 at the Chattanooga School Auditorium, 507 4th Street
Registration at each meeting will begin at 6 p.m., and a mailed official registration card will be required for members. The registration card allows for quicker registration and makes the holder eligible for an attendance prize.
Trustees who are elected at the district meetings will take office immediately following the annual meeting and will serve a three-year term. If there is no election, incumbents are held over for the term. Incumbents are Shan Files, District 1; Charles Spencer, District 3; and Tim McCary, District 5. McCary has announced he will not serve another term. If a new trustee is not elected at the District 5 meeting, one will be appointed by the board.
The Cotton Electric Cooperative annual meeting will be Sept. 27 at Great Plains Coliseum in Lawton. Registration for the annual meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m.
