Upcoming Regular Board Meeting of K.C. Electric:

K.C. Electric has recently hired a new Chief Financial Officer. Bo Randolph was formerly employed at Mountain View Electric, in the Limon office. Bo is married to Heather and they have three children: Avery (4), Alexis (2), Max (3 mo). Bo grew up in Limon and has lived there most of his life. He is a family man and says his greatest joy in life is spending time with his family.
Bo has an undergraduate degree with a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Accounting from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and a graduate degree with a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Fort Hays State University.
For those of you who haven’t met Bo, he will be at the Annual Meeting in Seibert on June 4, 2015. Hope to see you then. Drop by and meet Bo.
April 18 is National Linemen Appreciation Day
K.C. Electric would like to send out thanks to its fantastic linemen force. These men are hard working and dedicated employees. They put their lives on the line during all kinds of weather, to ensure that members have electricity and reliable service 24/7.
In the Flagler office, you will find Louden Hornung and Jacob Smith. In Cheyenne Wells, you will find Judge Unruh, Jason Scheler, Casey Hyle, and Ethan Miner. In Stratton, there are Paul Norris, Darren Fox, Chris Notter, Chris Ahlm, Austin Talbert, Heath McCoy, Riley Shaffer, Jason Brandon, and Paul LaBrake. K.C. Electric is doubly blessed by the fact that two former linemen handle other duties. Don Malone is meter technician and Robert Rueb is staking technician. Closely associated with linemen are warehouseman, Greg Martell and apparatus technician, Ron Wolfrum. It takes team effort to provide such great service. K.C. Electric is especially proud of the men and women in all four offices!
