Sonia McElroy qualifies for Shelby Energy ballot

Here’s an update on our story from two weeks ago about Sonia McElroy attempting to become the first person to ever petition her way onto the ballot in the election for Shelby Energy Cooperative’s board of directors.

Despite the roadblocks put up in her way by the company, and warnings by others that she would never be able to do it, McElroy informed us last night that she has qualified for the ballot. The election will be held at Shelby Energy’s annual meeting on June 22nd.
