LIHUE — Karen Baldwin, a member of the board of directors for the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative, has resigned effective April 18 due to a recent move to California.
“I have enjoyed my tenure and am proud of the progress KIUC has made over the past five years,” Baldwin said in her resignation letter. “You all have my support and I will watch your continued progress with interest.”
Baldwin’s term expires March 2018, and under the cooperative’s bylaws, vacancies for unexpired terms on the nine-member board are filled by appointment by the remaining directors.
“I thank Karen for her service to the cooperative and to the community,” said Jan TenBruggencate, chairman of the board of directors. “Karen was a thoughtful advocate for our members and helped move us closer to achieving our renewable energy goals.”
The remaining directors will take action on the vacancy in their April 26 board meeting.
