Legislative Appreciation Dinner
On February 3rd, 2020, Sho-Me Power and our nine member distribution cooperatives hosted the fourth annual Legislative Appreciation Dinner. Nineteen legislators attended the dinner at O’Donoghue’s Steaks and Sea Food in Jefferson City, accompanied by forty-six cooperative employees and directors. The Legislative Appreciation Dinner enables members of the Missouri House of Representatives and Senate to dine with their constituent co-ops in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition, it provides an opportunity to discuss the legislators’ efforts on behalf of Missouri Electric Cooperatives and to thank them for serving as our voice in Jefferson City.
“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)
