Letter: In support of Margaret Schreiner

To the editor,

Please vote to reelect Margaret Schreiner to the Dakota Electric Association board. She continues to demonstrate leadership and sound judgement on behalf of you, DEA’s member owners. Her energy, enthusiasm and persistence make her one of DEA’s most effective directors.

Margaret serves as one of DEA’s representatives to the Great River Energy board ( the wholesale supplier of electricity to DEA and 27 other electrical distribution cooperatives in Minnesota). She is a past chair of the transmission committee. In the last year she helped achieve a 0 percent increase in the wholesale power rate.

Margaret is a past chair and vice chair of the DEA board and has served on numerous DEA, statewide and national committees.

Margaret was recognized by the National Rural Electric magazine for helping DEA  become the first co-op to offer online voting. She was also the guiding light to convince the Minnesota State Legislature to allow Minnesota Co-ops to distribute unclaimed capital credits to local students as scholarship dollars.

Margaret Schreiner is committed to serving you, DEA’s member owners. Please re-elect her.
