Marion Comer, York Electric Cooperative, Inc. (YEC) member serving as a Trustee for District 2, submitted his resignation to the YEC Board of Trustees in April. The employees of YEC, fellow board members and the communities we serve appreciate his support and dedicated work during his 12 years of service.
Comer was always an advocate for reliable service for YEC members. He knew from his years of equipment sales that good materials, good tools and good people can get the job done. Speaking of those people, Comer was always supportive of taking care of our greatest asset— our employees—so that we can continue taking care of YEC members. The YEC team is grateful for his contribution to our cooperative.
Upon his resignation, the Board of Trustees voted to leave this seat vacant until the members of the cooperative can vote on qualified candidates at the 2024 annual meeting of members. Details on the qualifications for interested candidates will be published in the November/December 2023 local pages of South Carolina Living. Please note, the elected candidate to fill the vacant seat will be required to run again in 2025 for this seat’s normal three-year term.
