Information about Western Competitive Solutions checks
Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC), recently mailed distribution checks to its members on behalf of Western Competitive Solutions, Inc. (WCS). Unfortunately, there was an issue with the printing of the checks.
MEC is asking its members to not cash or deposit the checks.
A replacement check will be mailed to members within 10 days. MEC sincerely apologizes to its members for any inconvenience.
These checks represent a special one-time distribution to MEC members from proceeds derived from the liquidation of assets of WCS, and its subsidiary Mohave Cooperative Services, Inc, (MCS). WCS and MCS were separate entities from MEC with separate operations and financial activities.
After several years of work, all operations of WCS and MCS have been wound down and all their assets have been liquidated.
This distribution was the result of a multi-year effort of MEC’s current management and members of its Board of Directors, who have undertaken efforts to ensure that the distribution was made for the benefit of MEC members.
For more information about the WCS distribution, please refer to the letter that accompanied the check.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this caused our members.
In the 2012 elections, voter turnout in rural communities dropped by 18 percent—twice the decline seen nationally. That means the voice of rural America isn’t resonating as strongly as it should with our elected leaders and political candidates, and that the issues so important to us may not be front and center for them.
Fortunately, we have the power to turn this around. Together, we can boost voter engagement and turnout on Election Day by enhancing voter engagement. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) launched a major initiative to enhance voter engagement. The goal of the “Co-ops Vote” campaign is to boost voter turnout in areas served by cooperatives by encouraging electric co-op employees and their consumer members to exercise one of their most basic rights—the right to vote.
“America’s electric cooperatives are leaders in the communities they serve throughout the country with a powerful sense of their civic duty,” said NRECA Interim CEO Jeffrey Connor. “Co-ops Vote focuses elected leaders on the people who are most invested in the success of their own communities. With 42 million members across the nation, electric co-ops are a powerful voice on national issues that have a local impact. We want to be sure that voice is always heard, especially on Election Day.”
Working in collaboration with states and local co-ops, this non-partisan campaign will educate and engage all voters on important issues, such as ensuring continued access to reliable electricity, promoting co-ops’ development of innovative renewable energy solutions, and expanding broadband coverage throughout rural America.
