Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative’s Annual Meeting will be Tuesday, May 12, at The Silos, formerly the Sons of Hermann Hall, 1031 County Road 223, in Giddings. Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. and the meeting begins at 2:30 p.m. 

Four of nine seats on the Board of Directors were up for election this year. All were unopposed and will be elected by general consent in accordance with Bluebonnet’s bylaws. Those directors are Roderick Emanuel, District 3, Bastrop County; Russell Jurk, District 4, Lee, Milam and Williamson counties; Byron Balke, District 6, Austin, Colorado and Fayette counties; and Robert Mikeska, District 7, Washington County. Board members serve staggered three-year terms.

Even though there are no contested Board seats, items can be added to the Annual Meeting agenda that would require a vote by members. Those items would have to be added no later than 10 days before the Annual Meeting. Your proxy could be used in that vote, which is why your proxy selection is important.

Proxy forms were mailed to members in March. Completed forms must be postmarked by or dropped off at any of Bluebonnet’s member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart or Manor by 5:30 p.m. May 5. 

Before the meeting, members will have an opportunity to learn more about the cooperative at information tables, and meet the Board of Directors, the general manager and the cooperative’s executive staff. During the meeting, cooperative officials will present the annual State of the Cooperative report and learn of milestones Bluebonnet reached in 2019. 

They can also take care of Bluebonnet business and be entered in a drawing for door prizes. In addition, any Bluebonnet member who submits a completed proxy form or registers at the meeting will be entered in a drawing to win a truck being retired from Bluebonnet’s fleet: a 2011 Ford F-150 Extended Cab 4x4, with about 142,000 miles.
