No to High Electric Rates

United States

#1 Apr 23, 2008
Can Jesse Tilton the infamous CEO of ElectriCities of NC read? Can DC lobbyists stay in DC? I honestly thought Sam Noble, the board chair from Tarboro was smarter, but I guess not.
Climate change is going to pass Congress regardless of what Tilton and Noble write to the paper and Sen. Dole. Really. Who does not think something will pass?
Every presidential candidate is on the bandwagon and 3/4 of Congress is on the issue. It is one of the top issues of our time. Green jobs, green power, enviornmental quality. Can anyone honestly think they can stop it?
Climate change has a minimal effect on electric rates in electric cities in NC. The eastern cities own a small portion of coal. Jesse Tilton's miss on the refinance of the $3 billion eastern debt is a much bigger issue. That combined with his reckless spending will have a MUCH bigger effect on our rates.
How convenient to try to use the $100,000 lobbyist Rob Talley to move the issue to Sen Dole instead of where it belongs --- with Tilton. Obviously with such a week lobby team now, the paid guns have to come in an help. But picking on Dole on this issue seems to me to be a LOSER. Jesse Tilton is the cause of high rates as a result of total financial incompetence. I was not sure it was all true until I did my research. He is trying to pin it on Al Conyers the CFO who is retiring but the buck stops .... with TILTON.
Tilton needs to read the paper and deal with climate change and better yet own up to his completely screwed up miss on the refinance, lack of a competent lobby tema dn his misrepresentations about how good they are right now, and most of all quit trying to blame Dole. Dole and her staff, espeically Brian Nick, are too smart for that to happen. It makes us all look stupid. I, for one, want an entity screwing up our rates to be accountable and look respectable. This is ridiculous. The Tarboro paper reprinted the idiotic letter. I guess it took $700,000 worth of people to write it and it is still dumb.
