Well, there is a new group on the scene with members from the old groups and the new group. WWW.LIGHTBILL.WORDPRESS.COM
But we have not advanced very far in this theatre of corruption called ElectriCities.
A new CEO is in place and he is paid more than the old one and research shows there are some reasons we should be concerned.
A few bad apples are gone - Tilton, Norris and others. Relief from folks that Ken Raber was not moved up the proverbial totem pole at this place. But, have spending habits changed? no. Has transparency improved or been initiated? no.
Folks - if you want change, you better elect new city council members. Preferably some that know a kilowatt from a free dinner in Washington, DC.
Thanks for the update
I read that refinancing of debt won't happen? The truth is, they think they can wait you out.
I wish I had some words of advice, but I'm so discouraged by this "business as usual" crap that I'm just about ready to go postal.
disgusted with electric issues
After my triple bypass and recovery, I am supposed to remain calm. But you are right. No refinancing. This place has been so mismanaged, it disgusts me. The bobbled refinancing Jesee Tilton, Ken Raber and Al Conyers lorded over should have made someone wake up and say what is wrong. But no, that went down and we got a rate increase. This whole thing is such a bad deal. The amount of money these clowns waste and walk away with is absurd. I am sure Jesse Tilton is having a massage somewhere and laughing at what he got away with.
I want to see stringent environmental protection and it would be good except we are locked in with these jack***** so to advocate for clean energy, means my rates will increase even more than the regular guy. I understand these scoundrels put themselves in the statutes in a clever way so they could get some benefits they want ... like retirement system (and I am sure Jesse Tilton burned that up for the rest of the state employees) and no strings with auditor so they can have a foot in the public side and steal and then a foot in the private side and escape scrutiny, but still an investigation is needed and warranted.
Al Manning, retiree, native of eastern NC and proud of it, plenty of time to read, research and get annoyed about the lack of accountability in elected leaders these days. Married to a real southern lady and we live with two labs and two airedales who run
