To the editor:
Once again we will be asked by folks running for the Flathead Electric board for votes. We must study our candidates very carefully as there is a lot of time required to be a board member.
A large commitment must be made by a candidate to read and study and attend classes to be a good board member. Emery Smith has 15 years of service on the Flathead Electric board.
I am asking for your support for Emery Smith as he has completed all four levels of certification to be earned by board members. He has attended many classes to get his certification and to keep informed with the power issues and also the operation of cooperatives.
Voting for Emery Smith will mean continuity as well as knowledge on the board is also an asset to our members with a person with the experience of co-op business.
If a new person is elected to the board then the cost of training starts over and that cost is burden by us the members.
Thanks for your vote for Emery Smith.
