MEC Nominating Committee Announces Board Candidates

Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative’s (MEC) Nominating Committee, comprised of 11 members of the Cooperative, met on March 23, 2017 at MEC’s Headquarters office in Chase City to consider candidates to serve on the board of directors. Each candidate was interviewed, and after discussion the committee nominated the candidates listed below to serve three-year terms. No further nominations were submitted for consideration. For additional information on each of these candidates, refer to Cooperative Living magazines May 2017 issue on our website.

Ms. Lee is retired executive director of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency for Brunswick County, a position she held for 25 years. She has an appreciation for rural Virginia and the challenges facing its communities and residents. To further this mission, she is pursuing a degree in Health Administration.

She has a son, Marcus, and one grandson. In her spare time she enjoys watching football and basketball games, reading, and cooking.

She says, “I appreciate the opportunity to serve on the Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative board as the representative for District 10. It is our goal to keep costs as low as possible.”




Mr. Moore and his family own and operate Moore Farms located on the western side of Pittsylvania County. He is involved in numerous agricultural organizations and is charter member and treasurer of the Olde Dominion Agricultural Foundation. He was a charter member of Callands Volunteer Fire Department.
 He and his wife, Peggy, have three children, Daniel Moore, and twin daughters, Rebecca Gatewood and Sarah Moore, and one grandchild.
He says, “Being a director is a big responsibility and challenge because we want to provide the best electric service to the members. We do everything possible to hold costs down even though we have experienced a low rate of growth for several years.”

Mr. McDowell is the owner and operator of Locust Level Farm in Vernon Hill where he raises registered purebred Angus breeding stock, and he has been recognized for a number of agricultural achievements. He is an ordained minister and currently serves as pastor of County Line Baptist Church in Java, Virginia.
He and his wife, Wanda, have three grown children, Dr. Angela Collins, Dr. Bridget Brown, and Dr. West McDowell, and seven grandchildren.
He says, “Serving on the Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative board is so meaningful to me, knowing that our decisions make a positive difference in the lives of a lot of people.”



Mr. Myers is president of Gasburg Land and Timber Company and Gasburg Timber Corporation. He also serves as vice president of M.M. Wright, Inc., and Gasburg Equipment Company. A forester for 36 years, he has engaged in a broad range of activities including timber harvesting, ecological restoration, and management of protected areas.

He and his wife, Susan, have two children, Travis Myers and Jenna Wells, and one grandchild. His main hobby is hunting for deer, turkey and bear.

He says, “The Cooperative is owned by its members, and it is an honor and privilege for me to serve on the board where we look out for their interests.”
