On Thursday, May 16th, the OPALCO Board of Directors accepted George Mulligan’s resignation from the board with great appreciation and gratitude for his five years of service.

Board president Chris Thomerson said, “George’s ability to assimilate, refine and revealingly summarize complex financial issues provided the Board with a valuable perspective. His dedication and commitment to OPALCO and its membership has served the Co-op well over the last five years. George will be missed for his expertise—and his willing friendship.”

Mulligan’s seat on the OPALCO board represents District 1, which includes San Juan, Brown, Henry, Pearl, and Spieden Islands. OPALCO’s Directors will conduct interviews in search of a replacement to be appointed to the board to finish out Mulligan’s term, which expires in 2014. A permanent replacement will be voted in by the members at OPALCO’s annual meeting in May, 2014.
