STFU! Stop your whining and continue to pay your highest in the country utility bills! We are the only game in town and you'll like it! We'll get your power on when we get to it. You think your rates are high now? Wait until all of this is over, we're going to raise your rates through the ceiling to pay for all of this and there is nothing you can do about it. If you don't like it go live somewhere else.

Thats why I left the island, They tax a fee a person out the Azz and the highest cost of living to boot. But there are hardly any services.These union people get these astronomical salaries yet cant get it together in an emergency.Probably all they managed to do is patrol Dune Rd and make sure the beach houses dont get robbed.
