Resignation Voids Choctaw Electric Co-op Recall Election

Posted:
CHOCTAW COUNTY, OK -- The final member of the Choctaw Electric Co-op board facing a recall, has resigned.

According to CEO Joe Harris, long standing board member Buddy Anderson resigned at a recent special meeting.

Harris says Anderson had served on the board for the last thirty years.

Anderson was the final remaining board member from the previous nine who all resigned following months of controversy over the Co-ops business practices.

Angry customers submitted a petition in December with over 2,500 signatures demanding a recall election to remove the board.

Harris says now that all previous board members have resigned, the current trustees do not see a need for a recall election.
