What are the election results?

The Board of the Putney Food Co-op wants to thank you for participating in 2016 election process!  Almost 10% of our members voted in this cycle!  Although we hope for more participation in the future, the Board was happy with the turnout — it still more than doubles what our average voting patterns were before the move to balloted, electronic voting.

Below are the results of the vote as presented at the Annual Meeting.  For our voting procedures, click here.

Putney Food Co-op member-owners are the best and we thank you for your participation!  If you have questions about the below results, please contact us at board@putneyfood.coop.
