Election Results Released
We had a strong pool of candidates interested in serving on the board, and each candidate was passionate about the Co-op. The three candidates elected are Andrew Londre (new, at-large), Jocy Poehler (returning, La Crosse), and Verna Simon (new, Rochester). They will take office at the February board meeting. In addition, all twelve proposed bylaw amendments passed.
Thanks also go to outgoing board member Ray Schmitz, who served two years on the Rochester Good Food Store board as well as another three on the People’s Food Co-op board after the merger. Ray’s depth of knowledge about the law and the city of Rochester were a great asset to the board.
