Happy Holidays and Hopeful New Year
I don't know about you, but I am excited about the end of this year and the approach of the clean slate that a new year offers.
Events in 2020 presented some challenges for ordinary folks and businesses such as Hamilton County Electric Cooperative—but thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employees and the forward- thinking leadership of our board of directors, your co-op met those challenges. We’re poised to meet whatever challenges and opportunities might come our way in 2021.
The cooperative exists to fulfill a purpose: To provide the best possible electric service at the lowest possible cost, improving the quality of life for our communities in the process. That’s the cause to which everyone at your co-op is dedicated, year in and year out.
So as the new year draws near, I’d like to take a moment to thank all of the employees at Hamilton County EC. I’ve never seen a more dedicated group of people. They come to work each day with service to the co-op’s members on their minds and the safety of themselves and their co-workers foremost.
I’d also like to thank the co-op’s board of directors, whose members have taken on the responsibility of directing a multimillion-dollar utility. It takes real commitment to keep up with the ever-evolving standards of this complex and fast-changing industry while making decisions that affect thousands of their fellow members.
I’d especially like to thank you, our member-owners, who make all of our jobs possible. Thank you for your support and understanding when things don’t go right; thank you for paying your bills on time, which keeps the cooperative financially strong; and thank you for your participation in our annual meeting and community activities.
Without your cooperation, there would be no cooperative.
As we say goodbye to 2020 and look ahead to 2021, let us hope it will be a great year for all of us. Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy new year from Hamilton County Electric Cooperative!
