This is the petition verbiage:

This petition is presented by members of Tri-County Electric Cooperative. The mission of this petition is to remove the remaining Board of Trustee members as of May 25, 2018. The charges these members dictate as grounds for removal are exaggerated compensation and mismanagement of Cooperative per diem for Trustees. The members signing this petition use Article IV Section 7 of Tri-County Electric Cooperative bylaws as basis for removal.

The bylaws state:

“Section 7. Removal of Board Members by Members. Any member may bring charges against a board member and, by filing with the Secretary such charges in writing together with a petition signed by at least ten percentum of the members or 300, whichever is the lesser, may request the removal of such board member by reason thereof. Such board member shall be informed in writing of the charges at least 30 days prior to the meeting of the members at which the charges are to be considered and shall have an opportunity at the meeting to be heard in person or by counsel and to present evidence in respect of the charges; and the person or persons bringing the charges against him shall have the same opportunity. The question of the removal of such board member shall be considered and voted upon at the meeting of the members and any vacancy created by such removal may be filled by vote of the members at such meeting without compliance with the forgoing provisions with respect to nominations.”
