PIE&G Announces Director Elections at 82nd Annual Meeting in Onaway

Approximately 400 people attended Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op’s 82nd Annual Membership Meeting at the Onaway High School today.  According to Board Chair John Brown, “The annual meeting is a great example of cooperative principles in action.  Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members. Members have equal voting rights –one member, one vote – and co-ops are organized in a democratic manner.”

Each year elections are held for three (3) positions on the PIE&G Board of Directors.  After all ballots were counted, members approved all five of the bylaw amendments and the successful candidates winning election to three-year terms (2019-2022) are:  Kurt Krajniak (incumbent, Alpena District), Brentt Lucas (incumbent, Alpena District) and Raymond Wozniak (incumbent, Presque Isle District).

The number of votes that each candidate received is as follows:

Alpena District:
(two vacancies)
Kurt Krajniak 1,039
Brentt Lucas 829
Howard Lumsden 333
Darrell Spragg 666
Presque Isle District:
(one vacancy)
Gary Shepherd 654
Raymond Wozniak 1,088


Immediately following the meeting, the board of directors held their election of officers and the results are: Chair – John Brown; Vice-Chair – Allan Berg; Secretary – Sandy Borowicz; and Treasurer – Charles Arbour.


The winner of the $100 prize raffle for voting by mail was Ronald A. Skiera of Lachine.  In other business, members heard reports from the cooperative’s auditor and Chief Executive Officer, Thomas Sobeck.
