Central Rural Electric Cooperative district three trustee Carol Dvorak retained her seat and will serve an additional three-year term on the board of trustees.
This year, three members of Central’s seven-member board of trustees are up for election. District two trustee Stu Preston and District four trustee Len Tontz have decided to retire from the board when their terms end in October.
Dvorak, the incumbent for district three, did not face an opponent. Therefore, according to the bylaws, the trustee holding office from that district shall automatically remain in office for an additional three-year term provided he/she otherwise qualifies. There will not be a district election on August 31.
Dvorak is currently the president of the board of trustees and has served on the board since 2012. She has received her Credentialed Cooperative Director, Director Gold Credential and Board Leadership Certificate from the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. Dvorak is currently a lecturer and adjunct professor for Oklahoma State University, where she holds two degrees, and is an active member of the Perry community.
