“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.” — Robert F. Kennedy
Kennedy’s words ring true. Each opportunity to give of our time and our knowledge is a chance to enact change and better our community.
One such opportunity is serving on Noble REMC’s board of directors.
You may question how you can contribute to an electric cooperative board: “I don’t know anything about electricity!”
We’re not looking for electrical expertise — we can teach you that.
We’re looking for members who are passionate and hardworking individuals, and will bring their experience and perspective to learn how to best serve their fellow co-op members.
There are three districts up for election this year, and they include:
District 3: Currently represented by Andy Strack, this district is made up of Wayne Township in Noble County and part of Milford Township in LaGrange County.
District 6: Currently represented by George Bennett, this district covers all of Jefferson and Albion townships in Noble County.
District 7: Currently represented by Mark Demske, this district encompasses Allen and Swan townships in Noble County.
To run for election, qualified members of Noble REMC, who live in Districts 3, 6 or 7, must file a petition with the signatures of 15 Noble REMC members supporting the candidacy.
The REMC will provide the petitions for election, as well as other board information. Completed petitions and biographical information must be returned to the cooperative no later than April 5.
