CAIN UNANIMOUSLY RE-ELECTED TO OMPA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Janice Cain, Marlow City Administrator/Elector, was unanimously re-elected to serve another three-year term on the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority’s (OMPA) Board of Directors during OMPA’s 2011 Annual Electors Meeting.  The electors’ meeting was held at the Roland H. Dawson OMPA Headquarters Building in Edmond on September 8th.  This year marks a milestone for the consumer-owned public power entity – its 30th anniversary.

Cain was unanimously appointed by the board to fill a vacancy during the board’s monthly business meeting on March 11, 2010.  She has served as Marlow’s City Administrator since 1998.  In addition, Cain serves as a member and past president of the MESO Board of Directors and as a past board member and president of the City Management Association of Oklahoma.

She also serves as a board member of the Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group (OMAG) and is a past board chair.  She is a member of the International City/County Management Association and the American Public Power Association (APPA).  In 2008 during APPA’s National Conference, Cain received APPA’s Larry Hobart Seven Hats Award, which recognizes managers who perform a variety of duties in communities of 2,500 or fewer electric meters.

OMPA is a state governmental agency created by the legislature to serve cities and towns that own and operate their electrical distribution systems and is governed by the members.  The Authority presently serves 38 municipally-owned electric systems in Oklahoma.
