Redistricting Balances Population, Sets Clearer Boundaries
Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative (CCEC) is governed by a nine-member board of directors. Seven of the directors must live in geographic districts, while two are elected at-large. The CCEC Board of Directors recently approved changes to the seven directors’ geographical districts. These changes are being made to better serve the members by:
- Adjusting for Population Shift: Adjusting and updating the district boundaries allows the cooperative to balance the number of members per district.
- Taking Advantage of Geographical Landmarks: Director districts defined by well-known geographical landmarks help members, board, and staff better understand and retain the district boundaries.
The map and information below describe the adjusted director districts, expected to go into effect Nov. 26, 2018.
There will be one open seat for District 5. If you live within the boundaries of the newly-defined District 5 and are interested in becoming a director of CCEC, please call Director of Human Resources Tracy Price at (252)727-2228 or email her at email@example.com.
