I filed the appeal of the PEC lawsuit settlement that was ruled on by the Third Court of Appeals. Although the appeal was unsuccessful, I continue to be concerned about the co-op’s future, and have been asked by several candidates for support in the PEC Director election. In your coverage of the pending election, I hope you will find room for my endorsement of Larry Landaker, Cristi Clement, and Patrick Cox.
This election will finally end the decades-long dynasty of Directors who dozed while the PEC was managed like a personal fiefdom. This election will create a 5-to-2 Board majority for reform-minded Directors; beginning in June, there will be only two lonely holdovers from the good-old-boy era.
Landaker, Clement, and Cox will continue the reformation of the PEC Board of Directors into a governing body that will be responsive to the co-op member/owners. I believe they are the best qualified and have the strongest commitment to ethical governance and fiscal responsibility.
