Contest for a board of directors’ seat

A sitting member of the board at the Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative, Franklin Looper, faces a re-election challenge.  At a nomination meeting this week, Pickens County BREC board member Looper and a newcomer, Jason Dennis, received enough votes to qualify them for the ballot during Blue Ridge’s annual membership meeting in April.  All Blue Ridge customers, no matter their county of residence, will have the chance to vote on the contested seat during two days of drive-up annual meetings on April 10 and 11.
