In a February 17, 2010 post, titled “WKY Poltical Journal-Mongiardo - No reason for utility rate increases,” you wrote: Mongiardo also wanted to talk about cap and trade, which he passionately opposes, and his primary opponent, Attorney General Jack Conway endorses.
Jack’s statement for post:
“I am on record against cap and trade legislation. It runs completely counter to my goal of creating quality jobs for families in the Commonwealth. I cannot support any measure that would raise electricity rates by hundreds of dollars per Kentucky household and cost our state over 16,000 jobs,” Conway said. “There is an urgent need to preserve and grow Kentucky’s energy and manufacturing industries so we can create jobs. Coal is a valuable resource and that is why, If I am elected to be the next Senator from the Commonwealth, I will fight to ensure its place in our nation’s future.”
