On a split vote, at the December 2013 meeting, Satilla REMC Board Members voted to move the electric cooperative’s long-standing Annual Meeting from Memorial Stadium in Waycross to a new location in Douglas. The meeting is normally held the first week in October annually and has been held in Waycross for the past 62 years. Board members voting in favor of the move included Atkinson County Director Joey Morris, Coffee County Directors Scott Day and Kerry Vann (member at large) and Jeff Davis Director Herman Sellers. Voting against the measure were Pierce County Director Jim Waters, Ware County Director David Bennett and Wayne County Director Hinson Mosley. Bacon County Director Julian Rigby abstained from voting on the matter and Appling County Director Bobby Lewis was not present at the December meeting.
