Jemez Coop Elections Candidates

The Jemez Mountains Electric Cooperative (JMEC) is holding elections for their Board of Trustees in District 1 through District 6 this month, with the various district elections occurring between June 19 and June 26.

The Jemez Coop is the largest electric utility cooperative in the state of New Mexico, serving tens of thousands of ratepayers from Dixon to Cuba. JMEC is a vital entity in our community, providing a steady flow of electricity for our day-to-day lives. Its smooth operations and financial stability are vital to the welfare of our region.

Because of its importance, the Valley Daily Post will be focusing some attention on this often overlooked board election. The Valley Daily Post is inviting candidates in contested elections to share with us and our readers why their vision and reasons for running.

See below for a full list of all JMEC candidates, election dates, and locations (Incumbent Board members select the date and location for the elections in their district, resulting in elections falling on different dates).
