PEC voters elect Pataki, Klaus


Randy R. Klaus and Emily Pataki will serve District 3 and District 2, respectively, on the Pedernales Electric Cooperative Board of Directors after election results were announced Saturday, June 17, at the annual PEC meeting in Leander.


Voters in Pedernales Electric Cooperative’s District 2 and District 3 elected directors in the 2017 annual election.

District 2 re-elected Emily Pataki to serve as its board director and District 3 elected Randy R. Klaus to serve as its new board director. Klaus replaces former director Kathy Scanlon, who served District 3 for nine years.

Election results were announced during the PEC annual meeting Saturday, June 17, in Leander. This year’s meeting focused on PEC’s commitment to going “beyond the lines,” highlighting the cooperative’s stable financials, low rates, record growth and increasing member satisfaction in 2016.


PEC directors change board to single-member districts

By Lew K. Cohn, Managing Editor

Proposed changes to the bylaws of the Pedernales Electric Cooperative that change how directors are elected were passed Monday, Aug. 15, by the co-op's board of directors during a meeting that, at times, was very heated and tense.

The amendments to the bylaws — passed by a 5-2 supermajority vote — now create single-member districts in which only members who live within a district may vote for the director from that district. They also create a different quorum requirement for election of directors than that required for the annual PEC meeting, which is when director elections have traditionally taken place. The changes would take effect for the 2017 election cycle.
