Lone candidate and incumbent Board of Director Eileen H. Palme was re-elected last August 13, 2016 for Board of Director of District IX (Cuartero- Dumarao). The district election was held at Cuartero Central school and Dumarao Central School as designated venues and assisted by selected public school teachers in the locality.
A total of 319 votes were cast by the member- consumers from the municipalities of Cuartero and Dumarao to seal the victory of Palmes for a second term of office for the next three years.
Dir. Eileen Palmes became the lone candidate after Ms. Joyce Francisco was disqualified due to her five (5) year membership in the electric cooperative. Official records show that Ms. Francisco only became a member of CAPELCO last 2014.
The (5) year membership in an electric cooperative is a minimum requirement for those who intend to run as Board of Director of an EC as stipulated in Republic Act 10531 or the National Electrification Administration Reform Act of 2013.
