Well, this is the week when the ElectriCities board meets in Raleigh. Friday at 9 am. In all likelihood, board members will gloss over the damning record of management incompetence, and once again assure customers they're doing all they can in a tough environment. Hey, everybody makes multi-million-dollar mistakes, right? Poor CEO, it's not really his fault.
And guess who gets the short end of the stick? ElectriCities customers.
Kudos to the interpid blogger who is pushing this issue to the front of the public consciousness. It ain't easy when the media, elected officials, ElectriCities management and the board are all in bed together.
This is from the event notice at the bottom of the page:
Attend the Board Meeting, but more importantly call Board Members and Mayors prior and demand CEO accountability. Do you want to pay 5% more on your rates every year because the CEO does not know how to do a refinancing of the debt and screws it up. Demand Accountability. This is a public entity hiding.
1427 Meadow Wood Boulevard Raleigh NC. Off Atlantic Avenue.

This is a public building and your electric rates built it. Visit and see what you paid for. It is your building and the board is supposed to represent you.
