Kodiak Electric Association members voted to retain two incumbent board members and to add a new member to the electric cooperative’s board of directors.

Ballots were cast by mail, and the results were announced at Monday’s annual meeting.

According to a KEA press release, more than 200 registered members of the organization attended the meeting.

Returning for another term on the board are Linda Freed and Jay Johnston. Freed received 513 votes, while Johnston received 521. Newcomer Matt Moir was the top vote-getter with 566 votes. All three were elected to three-year seats. KEA Director Gordon Gould, having served 18 years on the KEA board, decide not to run for re-election.
