Lakewinds is a democratically controlled cooperative, and our owners shape the direction of the co-op by voting for our board of directors. This year, there are five candidates running for three seats.

Voting for our 2019 board of directors is now closed. 

Results will be announced at our Annual Meeting, and in the coming days.
