The results of the 2014 CoServ Board of Director elections are in, and for the first time in more than a decade a runoff election will be needed to determine one of the winners.
More than 3,100 Members attended CoServ Electric’s 2014 Annual Meeting last Thursday at the University of North Texas Coliseum in Denton, and a record number of votes – more than 4,000 – were cast through CoServ’s third-party Election Official before the meeting.
In District 4, three Frisco residents were up for election. Incumbent Jerry Cobb received 1,734 votes, Clinton Bedsole received 1,749 votes and Robert Breeden received 458 votes. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, a special runoff election will be conducted between Cobb and Bedsole this August.
In District 6, incumbent Bill Ragsdale of Flower Mound received 2,551 votes, and Raj Shrivathsa of Lewisville received 710 votes.
In District 3, incumbent Clyde Geer of McKinney ran unopposed and received 2,986 votes.
Ragsdale and Geer’s three-year terms began directly after the annual meeting.
Ballots for the special runoff election will likely be published in the August edition of Texas Co-op Power magazine, which will be mailed to more than 152,000 CoServ Members beginning July 29.
A special meeting to announce the results of the runoff election is scheduled for August 28 at CoServ’s headquarters in Corinth.
