LEGISLATIVE APPRECIATION FISH FRY
On Friday, October 10, Sho-Me Power hosted the annual Legislative Appreciation Fish Fry at Bennett Springs. While weather was less than ideal, it didn’t stop our Rural Electric Cooperatives from showing up and expressing their gratitude and appreciation for the elected officials who serve the great state of Missouri. Among the guests were Fourteen Legislators and Legislative Assistants. These elected officials are working hard at the legislative level to ensure that we can continue carrying out our mission of providing safe, reliable, low cost power for years to come and we greatly appreciate their efforts!
“Electric co-ops are essential to the economic well-being of the communities they serve, providing good jobs, keeping the lights on, and helping to create a positive environment for families, farms and businesses to thrive.”
Jim Matheson, CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)
