OMEA Holds Elections

Published on: 10/29/2012

The Ohio Municipal Electric Association (OMEA) last week held elections for the organization’s Board of Directors and Board leadership. The elections took place during the AMP/OMEA Annual Conference, held Oct. 22-25 in Cleveland.

The OMEA is guided by a 16 member Board of Directors, elected by their peers to staggered four-year terms. Board seats are held by OMEA member communities, with the community appointing the official as its representative to the Board. Re-elected to the OMEA Board of Directors were Hamilton (Council member Carla Fiehrer), Niles (Mayor Ralph Infante), New Bremen (Village Administrator Wayne York) and Oberlin (Council member Scott Broadwell).

Following the election, the Board of Directors held its annual reorganization meeting and reelected Mayor Richard Homrighausen, City of Dover, as President of the Board. Mayor Robert Vincenzo, City of St. Clairsville and Mayor Douglas Johnson, City of Bryan were re-elected to the Board’s Executive Committee.

Founded in 1962, the OMEA celebrated the organization’s 50th anniversary during the annual conference. The OMEA serves as the legislative liaison for Ohio’s municipal electric communities and for American Municipal Power, Inc.
