VERNONIA - The next election for the West Oregon Electric Co-op ends August 20, and for those members of the co-op in district 7 (which includes portions of Manning/Buxton, the Hagg Lake area, and rural Yamhill County), there’s one choice on the ballot this year: Buxton resident Mark Ludeman. 

The post is currently held by rural unincorporated Yamhill County resident Larry Heesacker, who lives west of Carlton and is owner and president of A-1 Logging. Heesacker is not seeking re-election.

Ludeman, 67, has lived with Jennifer Ludeman, his wife of 47 years at their property north of Buxton, Oasis in Nature, for 15 years. 

He has four adult children and one grandchild.
