HEA is holding its annual meeting of the members May 4.

Voting for 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.

We spoke with all the candidates ahead of the election. You can listen to our interviews, below.

HEA members can cast their ballots (1) by mail, (2) in person, at the annual meeting on May 4 and (3) online, through HEA’s electronic voting system. You can learn more about how to vote and read the candidates’ written bios here.
