Dear Concerned Carroll Electric Members,
This is an update on our efforts to nominate and elect *Marcie Brewster* to the board of directors of Carroll Electric Cooperative. We are enthused that so many supportive members have stepped forward to sign petitions and help collect signatures for Ms Brewster’s nomination. If you haven’t already done so, we ask everyone concerned about the future direction of our cooperative to please help nominate and elect Marcie Brewster to the board. Several hundred signatures have been collected so far but we need *800-1000* more to provide a cushion for those which will inevitably be rejected by Carroll Electric as invalid.
Petitions are available to sign at the following locations:
In *Jasper*: Emma’s Museum of Junk and the Boardwalk Cafe
In *Ponca*: Lost Valley Canoe Rental
In *Berryville*: It’s a Mystery bookstore on the square
In *Marble*: Petersen’s Granite and Marble
In *Eureka Springs*: Gazebo Books
In addition, numerous individuals are canvassing for signatures. If you are unable to visit one of the above locations please let us know and we will arrange for a canvasser to come to you. If you would like to help please contact one of us and we’ll make sure that you receive a packet with as many petitions as you need. Please encourage your friends and neighbors who are Carroll Electric members to sign the petitions and when you receive the ballot in your May electric bill, *VOTE for Marcie Brewster!*
The deadline for submitting the petitions to Carroll Electric is April 11 but we are asking that completed forms be returned to *4059 CR 516 Huntsville, AR 72740 by April 5*.
Please help us get the vote out, first to sign the petitions and then to send in your ballot. This is OUR cooperative and, with your help, we can make it more democratically controlled, open and transparent, and truly responsive to the needs of its members.
*Elect Marcie Brewster!*
