Crow Wing Power hosts annual meeting, elects board members

Incumbents gain re-election at Crow Wing Power annual meeting with 124 votes separating the closest race.


About 100 cooperative members attended Crow Wing Power’s 84th annual business meeting Wednesday, Aug. 4.

Crow Wing Power reported 5,817 ballots were cast in this year’s board of directors election.

  • In District 1A, Robert “Bob” Kangas was reelected with 3,001 votes over Fredrick Hage who tallied 2,773 votes.

  • In District 2 At-Large, incumbent LuAnn Nelson received 2,960 votes and won the election over Giles Radtke’s 2,836 votes.

  • In District 3B, Richard “Ric” Larson ran unopposed and received 5,021 votes.

The 2021 annual business meeting was not accompanied by a member appreciation event as it has in previous years. The goal was to be able to conduct the annual meeting in person. Planning required flexibility due to potential COVID-19 guideline changes, according to Crow Wing Power.
Crow Wing Power thanked members who attended the meeting and those who voted in this year’s elections.
