Manager’s Messages


Dear Members,

I would like to personally invite you to attend your upcoming 81st Benton REA Annual Meeting on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, at the Housel Middle School in Prosser. The activities will include a free health fair, energy fair, electrical safety demonstration and bingo that will fill the morning hours. The business meeting will begin at noon following a member appreciation lunch that will be catered by Henry’s Restaurant and Catering of West Richland.

The theme for the meeting will be “More Powerful Together”. I always feel excited and privileged to tell the story of electric cooperatives because it is a story about you, the members. By working together, the members, your Board of Trustees and the employees of Benton REA are able to bring affordable, reliable electric services to our local communities with the assurance that together we have local control over this vital and necessary service that makes our communities thrive.

You can witness firsthand the second cooperative principle of “Democratic Member Control” as we reveal the results of the District 7 and 8 elections at the Annual Meeting. Although not contested, these candidates still require the vote of the members to continue in their role as a Benton REA Trustee. Your vote matters! This is just one of the many ways that we are more powerful together!

I look forward to welcoming you to the Benton REA Annual Meeting this year. We sincerely thank you for the opportunity to serve you, and we hope you can join us on February 10, 2018, for an exciting and informative Benton REA Annual Meeting!


Michael J. Bradshaw
General Manager
