OPALCO is seeking a representative from District 1, which includes San Juan, Brown, Henry, Pearl, and Spieden Islands to serve on the Board of Directors after George Mulligan resigned.
The Board accepted Mulligan's resignation Thursday, May 16 with great appreciation and gratitude for his five years of service.
Board president Chris Thomerson said, "George’s ability to assimilate, refine and revealingly summarize complex financial issues provided the Board with a valuable perspective. His dedication and commitment to OPALCO and its membership has served the Co-op well over the last five years. George will be missed for his expertise—and his willing friendship."
OPALCO's Directors will conduct interviews in search of a replacement to be appointed to the board to finish out Mulligan's term, which expires in 2014. A permanent replacement will be voted in by the members at OPALCO’s annual meeting in May, 2014.
Orcas Power & Light Cooperative (OPALCO) was founded in 1937 to improve the quality of life in our rural islands. OPALCO serves about 11,000 co-op member-owners on 20 islands in San Juan County.
