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. 27-30 in Columbus.
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 Cuyahoga Falls, represented by Mayor Don Walters; Dover, represented by Mayor Richard Homrighausen; Pioneer, represented by Mayor Ed Kidston; and Wadsworth, represented by Mayor Robin Laubaugh. Also elected to an ex-officio seat on the OMEA Board was St. Marys, represented by Mayor Pat McGowan.
Following the election, the Board of Directors held its annual reorganization meeting and re-elected Mayor Richard Homrighausen, City of Dover, as President of the Board. Mayor Robert Vincenzo, City of St. Clairsville and Mayor Robin Laubaugh were elected to the Board’s three-member Executive Committee.
Founded in 1962, the OMEA serves as the legislative liaison for Ohio’s municipal electric communities and for American Municipal Power, Inc.
