Chris Hemphill resigned this week from the Arab Electric Cooperative board of trustees after he and his wife, Brooke, sold their house and moved to another district.

According to AEC’s bylaws, that means the remaining board members will appoint his successor.

The board met Monday night to accept Hemphill’s letter of resignation and to discuss the process for filling his seat.

The board voted to give residents of District 2 until close of business on Friday, April 22, to send in, deliver or e-mail letters of interest for those who want to be considered for the appointment.

To qualify, residents must be a resident of District 2 and be a member of the Arab Electric Cooperative.
