McMinnville Electric System is losing its longest consecutive serving board member, Jeff Golden. “There will be a vacancy on the MES Board in June,” said McMinnville Mayor Jimmy Haley during Tuesday’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting. “If you have anybody who would like to be a member, or if you would like to suggest anyone for membership, submit me those names so I can go through them and bring them back to the board for approval.”Golden is not expected to accept another reappointment.“Mr. Golden’s time on the board will be up and he’s expressed the idea he might not want to return this time,” said Haley.
