KEEPING LOCAL WEALTH HERE AT HOME Ownership and control ore the two important factors that determine whether a business keeps local dollars and their purchasing power here at home. Local ownership retains local wealth . . . absentee ownership as in commercial utilities, drains wealth away. Each REMC is owned by the member? consumers it serves. The organization is controlled by a board'of directors that has been democratically elected from among its members; Its general manager and em- ployees live in the local community! and spend their pay checks with local merchants. RElMCs belong to the families they sc^ve—• they work for the good of the entire ;community. ' : REMCs are to rural people, what municipal utilities are to city people. Both an; t consumer owned and controlled. Both exist for the sole purpose of providing their coijimu- nities with dependable electric service—at the lowest practical cost.
