PEC directors decline re-election


Two long- time Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) board members have announced they will not seek re-election.

Both District 1 Director Vi Cloud and District 6 Director Val Smith decided against running  for the PEC board of directors again. Cloud has served on PEC’s board since 1994, while Smith has served since 1983. District 6 covers a portion of Hays County, as well as portions of Blanco and Comal Counties.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working for the membership, and with fellow directors and staff,” said Cloud. “But after 15 years on the board, I think its time to relax a bit. I really appreciate the opportunity, and I will continue to support the Cooperative as a member.”

Cloud is a former member of the Marble Falls City Council, and now serves as a commissioner and vice president of the Texas Housing Federation, where she has served in various capacities since 1978. She has also served on councils and boards for various companies, banks and schools in Burnet County, her home of the last 40 years.

Both terms expire on June 20, which is also the date of PEC’s annual membership meeting in Johnson City.

In addition to filling the vacancies created by Cloud and Smith, members will also vote for the District 7 Director, which covers most of Hays County, and part of Travis and Caldwell counties as well. Wimberley resident Patrick Cox, through a suspension of PEC’s bylaws, was elected last June to fill the unexpired term of previous Place 7 Director and former Hays County Judge, Bud Burnett.
