Three members elected to NHEC board


Ballot question fails to pass


June 27, 2020
PLYMOUTH — Members of New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC) have elected three members to the company's Board of Directors and did not adopt a ballot question that would have changed NHEC's founding documents to include "facilitating access to broadband internet for members" as one of the purposes for which the Co-op was formed.

Voters elected three members to the 11-member Board of Directors. A total of five members were running for election. The three candidates elected by NHEC's members were Madeline McElaney of Plymouth, William Darcy of Benton, and Leo Dwyer of Sandwich.

Below are the full results of the 2020 Director election.

Madeline McElaney 5,137

William Darcy 4,445

Leo Dwyer 4,393

Harry Viens 3,663

Mark Portu 3,485

By a vote of 4,599 (YES) to 2,539 (NO), the ballot question to change NHEC's Certificate of Organization did not achieve the required two-thirds approval of members voting in the 2020 election.
