Residency Questions

I am applying for a position in the following district.
Article IV: Board Members; Section 3: Qualifications of Electric Cooperative Bylaws states the following: SECTION 3. Qualifications: No person shall be eligible to become, or remain a board member of the Cooperative who: (a) Is not a member in good standing. Without limiting the foregoing, Board candidates and members shall be and remain in compliance with all Cooperative policies, rules and regulations. (b) Is not currently a bona fide resident, and has not so resided for the previous twelve (12) months, in the cooperative district he or she seeks to, or does, represent; (c) Within the previous ten years has been convicted of a crime that is, or would otherwise constitute, a felony under Oregon law; (d) Is in any way employed by or financially interested in a competing enterprise or a business selling electric energy, or who has a continuing conflict of interest with the Cooperative enterprise. Where an occasional or transitory potential conflict arises the board member should announce the conflict and not vote on the matter involved. The provisions of Oregon Revised Statutes 244.020 concerning a “potential conflict of interest” or a “public official” shall be used as a guide for determining board member conflicts. (e) Has been employed by the cooperative on a full-time basis within the previous five (5) years, or is a close relative of such employee. (f) Does not possess and maintain the legal ability to contract. Each director candidate shall certify in writing that the candidate meets the required qualifications and will provide notice to the Cooperative should that status change. Upon establishment of the fact that a board member is holding the office in violation of any of the foregoing provisions, the board shall remove such board member from office. Nothing contained in this section shall affect in any manner whatsoever the validity of any meeting of the board.
