There will be a meeting announced in the upcoming weeks as to the organization of a group that is being formed for the purpose of taking our customer owned EMC back from the current management and board. There is an attorney that will be involved and is currently looking into grounds for a class action suit against board members and management. If you really care about our community then spread the word and tell people to be watching for announcements in the local paper and media. Supposedly the board has hired an attorney to look into what happened concerning the Terry Taylor bill. He is supposed to release a report to the members as to the findings of his investigation. Be watching for that as well. Spread the word.

Mrs Paynes strong ties are through Terry Taylor--She is a good old gal who does not cause trouble and has weathered the Bank Of Hiawassee going broke.
The board knew she would not ask hard questions or cause trouble.
She is generally well liked and pleasant person.
She is friends with Georgia Mountain Fair woman manager--
Terry worked for the fair for years and years as the engineer/designer of the fair grounds-
Taylor was strongly tied to Elois Anderson who was appointed when her husband died while on the BRMEMC board.
Board member Jerry Nichols is a life long friend of Terry Taylor. Was best man at his first wedding?
When Bob Anderson died his wife was picked by the board to serve out his term then was "nominated' by a hand picked committee, that each board member chooses to renominate them.
The nominating committee has never , that I know of ,not renominated a board member unless the committee knew that member wanted off the board. NEVER.
If I am wrong then someone please point out my errors.

payne is not at park sterling. Everyone was a friend to mrs. Anderson, i am sure u thought she was wonderful when u had to borrow money at the bank. Mr. Taylor may still be a friend to mr nichols but i bet u do not know everything your friends are doing or what they owe. Someone said 5 of the board members have only served 5 yrs or less. Emc employees are paid well, do not kid yourself. Board members are not employees.

The ones from Union County have been there since Noah. That is why the sorriest people in management are from Union,.

EMC employees are not the problem. People like you are. And no, Board Members are not employees and they dang sure aren't the sole owners of the EMC. Even though they act like they are. They have a legal duty and obligation to the " members" who are the actual owners. How does anyone accept the fact that a Board member owes 48,000 dollars on his power bill and no one knew about it? Not possible. Some but not all of the Board members knew about it and said nothing. Akins knew about it and said nothing. Staff members knew and said nothing. How does anyone think that is just ok? It's just wrong. Why don't you ask that ex Chairman of the Board at Cobb EMC if he thinks it is a good idea to run an EMC like his own private business? Might better wait until he gets through his court case. He has been indicted for his little dirty deeds. The Board over at the EMC as well as the management need to take note.

Yes unless your last name is TAYLOR then they just turn their head.

Things must not be gettin any better for the employees over there either, i was talking to some the other day and several of them are trying to get the union in there now so that they will be treated fairly and have some protection. I wonder what the board thinks of this and if they are asking questions now or are they still just letting whatever matt wants still happen

Is this for real? Please tell me that there has been some kind of mistake!! How on God's Green Earth, could the General
Manager, Mathew Akins, know about this but yet DO NOTHING!!
I don't know about any of you, but to see a bill be almost $50,000 and never attempted to pay until it is exposed makes me mad as hell.
Like the lady on the news from Fannin county stated, they would have cut her power off in 5 days for a delinquent bill of $164!!!
What the heck ???? Between the new building and this . How much more will we be ripped off. Time for them to start giving us some of our hard earned money back. I had one bill last winter that was almost 500.00. What a load of crap !!!!!!!!!!

If GA Power had done it would be illegal but BRMEMC is a private non profit regulated by the members. We won't get our money back but the IRS might be interested. That may be the only way that we get an audit. If we don't vote them out then we have no one to blame but ourselves. They were secretive because they knew it was wrong.

They found out they were in the minority and didn't get enough people on their bandwagon. That and they got slapped with a lawsuit for slander.
