Ramey Unanimously Re-Elected To OMPA Board of Directors
John Ramey, Okeene Town 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 2012 Annual Electors Meeting. The electors’ meeting was held at the Roland H. Dawson OMPA Headquarters Building in Edmond on September 13th.
Ramey was elected to serve the remainder of a term of an OMPA board member who resigned in July 2011 and has been serving on the board since that time. He has been serving as Okeene’s Town Administrator since May 14, 2007.
He received the American Public Power Association’s (APPA) Larry Hobart Seven Hats Award on June 19, 2012 during the association’s national conference. This award recognizes managers who perform a variety of duties in communities of 2,500 or fewer 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 39 municipally-owned electric systems in Oklahoma.
