PLEASE attend the rate committee meeting tomorrow at 10 am in Rocky Mount, Braswell Library. Ken Raber and Sam Noble told one of our gorup that we would not get answers to questions but we could ask questions. Apparently it is not appropriate for them to answer questions before they stick it to you. And answering questions is a drain on them administratively.
Jesse Tilton has admitted a botched refinancing deal that is costing 5% of the rate increase. Don't know about you but I can handle paying for increased fuel costs but the extra 5% because of CEO mismanagement is another story and the fact that he concealed it for months is an even bigger problem.
Reporters are running around writing what they are told and not questioning what they are told. Why? Lazy, inept. Who knows.
I implore everyone in one of the 32 eastern electric cities. Call your mayor, council members and ask them why this 5% rate increase for a bad refinance deal is being covered up?? Why are you being told it is all fuel costs when they KNOW it is not. Put them on the spot. Come to the meeting and ask the question. There have been no responses to these entries because this information is a fact.
Jesse Tilton tells the elected officials and then they all hold it tight so no one will know they screwed up. If this is not corruption, what is?
