There are two open positions in this year’s Orcas Power and Light Cooperative election and only two candidates. Because this is an uncontested election, OPALCO has scaled back the candidate forums; there will only be one forum on Thursday, March 15, at 6 p.m. at Odd Fellows Hall on Orcas Island. The cost savings are significant.
All members from any island can still participate by:
– Submitting questions for the candidates before March 15 (send to firstname.lastname@example.org).
– Watch the forum on Facebook Live.
– Watch the Orcas forum on video (available online by March 29).
– Watch video statements of each candidates (available online by March 29).
Richard Christmas and Jeffrey Struthers are running for the two open spots in District 2. District 2 includes Orcas, Armitage, Big Double, Blakely, Fawn, Little Double and Obstruction islands. All members vote in all elections regardless of which district they live in. Voting opens March 29.
Don’t forget to attend the annual meeting on April 21 aboard the interisland ferry!
