Pedernales Electric Cooperative’s board of directors elected its board officers at a meeting Aug. 20.

The elected officers will serve one-year terms. Paul Graf was selected to be the board president, Jim Powers will be the vice president and Emily Pataki—the representative for the district, including Leander and a portion of Cedar Park—will be secretary and treasurer, according to a statement from the PEC.

Pataki previously served as the board president for two years.

“Now, as secretary-treasurer, I’m looking forward to supporting President Paul Graf and working with our executive team to ensure that as an organization, PEC continues to uphold its mission of delivering low-cost power safely and reliably to our members,” Pataki told Community Impact Newspaper.
