Message to the Members:

It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your Director for the last six years.  I have learned a great deal about the business of Chariton Valley but am still learning as there is so much to learn in the ever-changing telecommunications industry.  The Board has made some great strides in moving Chariton Valley forward in securing a solid business for its employees and customers.  We are expanding our service and reaching out to area towns providing them with our services while building a much stronger company and cooperative.  We are a nationally recognized and respected company in the industry and a leader in offering Broadband in rural Missouri, something we all should be proud of.  I would like to continue to serve as your representative for the Northwest Area and finish working on some of the projects we have begun.  I would greatly appreciate your vote.

Message to the Members:

I believe in the cooperative business model.  When the cooperative benefits its owners/members, we can provide cost effective telecommunications that make our homes and businesses more enjoyable and efficient.  The shareholders are the owner/members, and if elected, I would work to represent their interests and the interests of the Cooperative, as a whole.  I have served in a variety of leadership positions where I have helped with problem solving, strategic planning, and in establishing safety protocols along with detailed decision making.  I would appreciate your vote and the opportunity to bring my experience and serve on the Chariton Valley Board of Directors.   Thank you for your consideration.
