Choptank Electric Board of Director Retires after 21 years of Service
After 21 years of dedicated service, Francis “Sonny” Callahan Jr., Director for Caroline County, retired from the Choptank Electric Cooperative Board on Tuesday, March 26, 2019.
He began his Choptank Electric career in 1965 as a temporary staker’s helper. He became a Journeyman Lineman in 1969 and served as a Chief Lineman from 1973-1990. He was awarded the job of Purchasing Agent in 1990 and retired from that position in 1995.
Having been a Choptank Electric member since 1966, Callahan still wanted to influence the company in a positive way, so in 1998 he ran and won the Caroline County seat for the Board of Directors. He received his Director Gold Credentials through the NRECA Directors Certificate Education Programs in 2017.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank Sonny for all of his dedicated years of service to Choptank Electric Cooperative,” said Jeffrey Rathell, Chairman of the Board at Choptank Electric. “He was an asset to the Board and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
