Virgil Monroe

District C Candidate


It has been my honor and privilege to represent the members of Cloverland Electric Cooperative District C for the past twelve years and I am asking for your support again for re-election to the board.

I was raised in Curtis, Michigan, graduated from Newberry High School, and hold an degree from North Central Michigan College.  I now reside in Manistique.  I have held a Master Electrical License with the State of Michigan for forty-five years.  While operating Monroe Electric, I was hired as an electrical inspector with the State of Michigan, Bureau of Construction Codes, in 1986.  In 2000, I was promoted to the first Senior Electrical Inspector position, then to Chief Electrical Inspector.  As Chief Electrical Inspector I was in charge of the Electrical Division of the Bureau of Construction Codes.  As Chief, my responsibilities were the promulgation and enforcement of all codes, laws, rules, and regulations that govern the electrical industry.

In my years with the Bureau, I worked very closely with local code enforcement authorities, local governmental officials, State Senators and Representatives, and the State Attorney Generals office.

In 2016, I was elected by my peers on the Cloverland board to the office of Chairperson in which I served for two years.

I was elected by my peers on the CEC board to the newly formed company ARC Power in January 2022.  The directors of ARC elected me to the chair position.

As a director we are requested to attend director training classes.  I have now received my certificate for the Director Gold Program which is the highest level attainable.

Again I ask for your support.
