We have the utmost confidence that Dick will continue to lead the company in a way that serves the best interests of Valley’s members.
Evans was named the CEO in Oct. 2018. She was arrested in Feb. 2019 following allegations she billed $75,000 worth of work to Valley Electric to have the power lines around her home moved underground. She had been on paid administrative leave since the arrest. Evans has yet to be charged.
There is also an investigation into the co-op for sexual harassment allegations.
