It’s that time of year again – the 2015 PEC Board of Director elections are upon us. I am going to write a more in-depth piece on the importance of voting in these elections within the next week, but for now, I want to get information out to the members on how to vote and who the candidates are this year.
This year we have three Director seats up for election. REMEMBER, PEC MEMBERS CAN VOTE IN ALL DIRECTOR ELECTIONS REGARDLESS OF DISTRICT!!! Below are the Districts and their respective candidates (listed alphabetically), along with links to information about each of the candidates:
