Your connection to the co-op
Bluebonnet's community representatives connect us to the areas we serve — our members, local business leaders and elected officials.
Our five community representatives are each assigned to counties within Bluebonnet's service area.
Your community representatives core responsibilities are:
- Provide basic information about Bluebonnet services, programs, activities, regulations, rates and fees
- Respond to member inquiries and referring people to the appropriate Bluebonnet department or individuals for help
- Represent the cooperative on local committees and task forces, attending community events and giving presentations to civic groups
