Three long-time Basin Electric directors have retired: Board President Roy Ireland of District 7, Rushmore Electric; Reuben Ritthaler of District 10, Powder River Energy; and Wayne Child of District 5, Tri-State G&T, who has been the longest-serving director in Basin Electric history.

They were recognized during Basin Electric’s 2013 Annual Meeting banquet and presented with crystal gavels by CEO and General Manager Andrew M. Serri.

Ireland, Ritthaler and Child each reflected on their service and shared thoughts from the stage.

Marshall Collins was elected to Child’s seat, representing District 5 on Basin Electric’s board. Mike McQuistion was elected to Ireland’s seat, representing District 7. Director Wayne Peltier was also re-elected to another three-year term representing the cooperative members of District 9.
