Co-op board elects officers
Socorro Electric Cooperative’s Board of Trustees gathered at the co-op’s board room at 310 Abeyta for the first meeting in the new year to choose its officers.
District V trustee Anne Dorough was elected president; District IV trustee Dave Wade, vice-president; District I trustee Leo Cordova, secretary/treasurer. As the board has now trimmed down to only five trustees, the positions of secretary and treasurer were combined.
All officers were elected by a 3-2 vote.
Other members of the board include Melissa Amaro, District III, and Charles Wagner, District II.
Also present at the meeting were SEC Manager Joseph Herrera, attorney Bruce Wiggins and SEC HR Manager Eileen Latasa.
Because the Jan. 29 SEC meeting was held after press time coverage of that meeting will appear in next week’s edition of El Defensor Chieftain.
