Why is candidate seeking re-election to the KanOkla  Board?

Brad stated, “I have been a member of KanOkla for 24 years.  I currently serve as your Kanokla board President. I’ve enjoyed the new challenges serving in that capacity has brought.  One of the challenges I’ve seen in the telecommunications industry is keeping up with the new and advanced technology. I enjoy the challenge of keeping the high standard of Communications to our members in Rural America.  KanOkla has done a tremendous job keeping up with this technology and delivering an outstanding service to its members.

Serving as a director for 9  years now, I have seen KanOkla grow and maneuver our company to become prosperous and service its patrons and customers despite a volatile telecommunications environment.  I will continue to help relay and address any concerns or questions you might have with our cooperative. I will help to further that outstanding service. I’m excited to have the opportunity to be re-elected as a director on the KanOkla Board.  KanOkla has helped me and my family grow our knowledge of the Telecommunications world.

Kanokla brings the world to our fingertips here in Rural America!  That’s why Kanokla means the world to me. I would like the chance to give back a portion of what KanOkla has given me and continue to put my experience to work for you, the members of KanOkla Networks.”
