Candidate nominations for three seats on Homer Electric Association’s nine-member board of directors are now being accepted through March 3.
HEA’s Board of Directors is responsible for creating policy, developing rates and providing organizational direction, according to the cooperative’s webpage.
HEA members will elect representatives in District 1, which includes Kenai and Nikiski; District 2, which includes the Soldotna, Sterling and Kasilof areas; and District 3, which includes the Homer and Seldovia areas. Board members serve three-year terms.
