PSC only raises utility rates

Dear Editor,

I’m not at all surprised by the latest rate hike from Alabama Power. We need to have an increase for the third time in less than a year like we need a hole in the head.

Jim Sullivan and the rest of the PSC have done nothing but approve both gas and electric rate increases during their tenure.

I wish I could go to the PSC and get a pay raise to pay for all those increases. Folks, we need to throw out the lot of them in the next election. If George Wallace Jr. were still at the PSC this would not have happened.

Unfortunately, Jim Sullivan and the rest at the PSC are not true public servants.

I have to wonder what they (at the PSC) are doing with all the PAC money from these companies.

Good old boy politics is alive and well in the PSC.
