Okay, so here's the latest headline from the Conway campaign.
Stumbo, Chandler Refute Mongiardo on Utility Rates
Defend Conway's Record of Saving Money for Kentucky Consumers
For those of you who don't recognize their names - Greg Stumbo is Speaker of the House - you know, the House that can't pass a budget so is coming back for another week of $64,000 days. And that other guy is the Democratic Congressman from the Bluegrass who has done little or nothing for Kentucky since he's been in Washington. Yeah. Those two.
We in little Clinton know who sets the utility rates - the PSC just allowed AIG baby Utilities inc. to raise our rates by over 30%. The AG? Yeah. He was at the table. So. Here's the question: if you ask for 51% and get 31% in a negotiated settlement, wouldn't you be happy?
Conway may have "saved" rate payers millions - but he hasn't gone to bat for us. He's sat at the table and nodded like a bobble headed doll while the utility companies got - not what they asked for - but more than they expected.
And with E On and KU asking for rate increases, Kentuckians should be prepared for more "savings" ahead from this PSC and this Attorney General.
