Homer Electric Association members to choose three new directors this election
Voting in Homer Electric Association’s 2023 election opens Friday. This year, voters in each of HEA’s three districts will decide between two candidates for the co-op’s board of directors.
District 1 includes Kenai, Nikiski and parts of Soldotna. Robert Ernst is running against incumbent Jim Duffield for that seat.
District 2 includes Soldotna, Sterling and Kasilof. Dan Green is running against incumbent C.O. Rudstrom for that seat.
And District 3 represents the southern peninsula, from Kasilof down to the Kachemak Bay area. Michael Jones is running against incumbent Jim Levine for that seat.
