Board of Directors and Staff

Alger Delta Cooperative is dedicated to meeting our members’ needs while helping to make the community a better place to live and work. Alger Delta is one of about 900 electric cooperatives serving over 40 million electric consumers in 47 states.

Alger Delta has a nine-member Board of Directors who exercise the governance function of the Cooperative. Local representation and control allows all members to have a strong voice in how the cooperative is run and how to best meet the needs of the areas where we serve. Democratic control is one hallmark of Cooperatives — local people working together to provide safe, reliable and affordable electric energy.

Alger Delta Announces Election Results:

Alger Delta's board will have two incumbent directors returning for another term. Members in Grand Marais elected Director Mike Lawless to return to the board as their representative. In Cedar river, the members re-elected Director Dave prestin for another term. The outcome in these two districts was never in doubt as those two candidates ran unopposed. Alternative 1: District 3 (Harvey, Deerton) was a different story, however. In that district, members had two well qualified candidates to select from. Incumbent director Karen Alholm won the election over challenger David Lynch. Alholm is a retired attorney who has served one, three-year term on the Alger Delta board. Lynch is retired from the Marquette Board of Light and Power where his last position was Assistand Director. Alger Delta has nine directors. Directors are elected for a three-year term and three directors are up for election each year. Directors are responsible for the governance of the cooperative which includes setting policy and long term strategy.
