Mail-in ballots for the upcoming Homer Electric Association board of directors annual election have started showing up in co-op member mailboxes around the area. On the ballot are candidates for one seat in each of the three HEA regions.
In District 1, the Kenai area, the lone candidate is incumbent Dan Chay. In District 3, the Lower Peninsula, a Seldovia woman, Erin McKittrick, is challenging the middle-age white male hegemony on the board, and faces fellow board new-comer Gregory Martin Jr. of Homer. The winner will replace board member Bill Fry.
