EnerStar Director Elections Results Announced
EnerStar Electric Cooperative has announced their 2021 director election results on voting which concluded on June 24. The cooperative is a democratically controlled, not-for-profit electric co-op that is governed by nine directors elected by and from the members of their respective voting districts. Directors serve a three-year term in office.
Kevin Julian of Metcalf in Voting District A and Jeremy Williams of Martinsville in Voting District C each ran unopposed and were re-elected to the co-op board.
Newly elected to the co-op board is Darin Griffin of Paris who will serve in Voting District B. Griffin received 192 votes while incumbent board member John Fell received 127 votes.
Serving as election inspectors were Pat Macke of Marshall, Tom Phillips of Chrisman, and Ray Young of Paris. Assisting with the election count was cooperative attorney Billie Constant of Tapella & Eberspacher LLC, the co-op’s corporate counsel.
EnerStar CEO Reyher announced that since the Illinois governor’s Restore Illinois Plan and state mandates that limited the size of gatherings have been lifted, plans are underway for the upcoming 2021 annual meeting of members.
This year’s annual meeting will be held on Thursday, September 9, 2021, at the Paris High School campus. An evening meal will be served in the school’s cafeteria, followed by a business meeting to be conducted in the Paris Center of Fine Arts (PCOFA), attached to the high school.
For those not familiar with this facility, the PCOFA is a state-of-the-art performing arts venue that is well-suited for a cooperative annual meeting. The school and the 500-plus seat theatre were opened in 2015 and are both served by EnerStar.
Reyher encouraged members to mark their calendars and make plans to attend. Meeting details will be sent to all active cooperative members in early August.
EnerStar Electric Cooperative is committed to providing superior service based on four core principles: integrity, accountability, innovation, and commitment to community. The co-op serves more than 5,250 meters over 1,492 miles of line in parts of Clark, Coles, Douglas, Edgar, and Vermilion counties. For more information visit www.enerstar.com.
