Rural Friends of Electric Cooperatives PAC Endorses Glenn Rogers
State Representative Glenn Rogers of Palo Pinto County has received the endorsement of the Rural Friends of Electric Cooperatives Political Action Committee (Rural Friends) for election to State House District 60.
HD 60 consists of Palo Pinto, Parker and Stephens counties. The district is served by four distribution cooperatives: Comanche Electric Cooperative, Fort Belknap Electric Cooperative, Tri-County Electric Cooperative, and United Cooperative Services.
“Electric cooperative leaders deeply appreciate Glenn Rogers’s strong record supporting locally owned cooperatives and our efforts to provide affordable and reliable energy services to our communities,” said Rural Friends Trustee Julia Harvey. “Rural leaders are badly outnumbered in Austin these days. Yet Glenn fights hard and succeeds in winning victories for rural people. Electric cooperative leaders enthusiastically support Glenn Rogers’s race for House District 60.”
Texas’ 75 electric cooperatives were founded 80 years ago and operate in 241 of the state’s 254 counties, serving over four million consumers.
Tri-County Electric Co-op is a strong supporter of Rural Friends of Electric Cooperatives PAC with employees, management and the board of directors contributing each year to the PAC on behalf of the cooperative. Tri-County Electric Co-op has 100 percent of the employees voluntarily participating in Rural Friends each year.
Rural Friends promotes the interest of electric cooperatives and our consumers through participation in the political process. Membership in the organization consists of supporters of electric cooperatives, including managers, directors, employees and consumers.
