Up for election

Three director seats to be chosen at meeting

Posted on Mar 05 2020 in Heartland REMC

Members of Heartland REMC will vote for three board seats at this year’s annual meeting in June. Up for election this year are:

• District 8 (incumbent director is Joh Smith);

• District 11 (incumbent director is Alan Schlagenhauf);

• District 31 (incumbent director is Doug Wilcox).

Potential candidates have until April 10 to file for nomination. To file as a candidate, you must secure the signatures of at least 20 Heartland REMC members. The person signing the petition must be the member of record and not a spouse. All signatures are verified. The signatures can come from any district in Heartland REMC’s service territory, and are not limited to only the district in which the candidate resides.

Potential candidates can only seek election for the district in which they live. Members interested in running for a seat can call the office to determine if they are eligible to run based on the district maps. 

Information packets for potential candidates are now available at the offices during regular business hours. A candidate must pick up the packet before obtaining the member signatures. 

All registered Heartland REMC members are eligible to vote at the annual meeting held on June 27, 2020.
