What will it take to electrify the KIUC electorate?
Typically, not even 25% of our utility co-op members bother to vote for the Board of Directors. Shoots, we can do way better than that! And this year, with some good progressive candidates running, it's more important than ever that caring people cast their ballots.
My top pick is Joel Guy. Others worthy of consideration are Pat Gegen, Karen Baldwin and Ken Stokes. You can vote for three. So please do!
There are three ways to vote: Send in the ballot you got by mail, call 877-778-5482 or go on line. To vote by phone or on-line, you will need the access code printed on your ballot reply envelope.
If you lost your access code, or need help, call 877-324-7655.
The deadline for voting is NOON, SATURDAY, MARCH 24 so don't dilly dally and dawdle.
Because as Gary Hooser noted in an email he sent out yesterday:
We have a great opportunity before us NOW to accelerate positive change in our community. Our community needs your active engagement now.
And that gives me a great segue to give props to Jonathan Jay, who has worked so hard to get out the vote. If you want more info on voting or the progressive candidates, visit his website, Power to the People.
But main thing, vote, and encourage everyone you know to vote, too.
Let's freakin BLOW the old guard completely out of the water.
