Just received this month’s electric bill and my basic electric has a 103% charge added to it for the fuel surcharge increase. And if you add all the additional charges my basic electric bill was increased 155% over the actual electric used.

Now just who if not Lakeland’s political leaders should be held responsible for this thievery?

Ask yourself just what will it take to ignite some sort of response in you, some fight, some reaction. I mean look at you people you are being raped by your own elected officials and you just accept it and keep putting them and their good old buddies back in office. The Commissioners and Lakeland Electric have been stealing from each and everyone of you for years and have you done anything?
...
Well here’s your chance to make a stand, hold every elected official responsible for your electric bill no matter what office or party; tell them all that we Polk Residents are removing them from office because we are personally holding them responsible for Lakeland Electric's unfair treatment of its customers.

Now this may sound extreme but do you realize just how much power we have over Lakeland Electric when we the people band together and show no mercy to the sheriff, to the chief of police, the school board, the county commissioners, the dog catcher and every elected incumbent.

Think about it, would any Politian actually sacrifice their political position for Lakeland Electric, NO WAY!

It’s time for action by the real owners of Lakeland Electric...
“WE THE PEOPLE”.

Remove Them, Remove Them All, Show No Mercy!

Remember to vote Republican all the way, democrats are still the true slave owners and traders.
