Terminations for the electric and gas have risen to “record high levels." Our State Representative Ed. Gainey promised during the campaign of 2012 to "do something" of but hasn't done a thing . . .

Don't confuse BLACK REPRESENTATION with BLACK LIBERATION . . . Our neighbors are struggling in this cold without utility service. Since passage of Act 201 (Chapter 14 of the Public Utility Code), electric terminations rose 78.6 percent. A recent Biennial Report issued by the Pennsylvania Utility Commission "PUC" concluded that terminations for the electric and gas have risen to “record high levels." Our State Representative Mr. Gainey promised during the campaign of 2012 to "do something" of but hasn't done a thing.

Our government is a surrogate plutocracy (a form of government in which power is lodged in the hands of wealthy special interests that arrange the continual reelection of representatives who govern as their surrogates). Special interest groups have given State Representative Ed. Gainey $143,781.00 to shake your hand, smile, and call you a "dummy" for voting for him!!!

The use of public utilities pervades the life of every individual. Each time a person walks into a heated room, eats food that has been either refrigerated or cooked, or uses a light that person is likely relying on some sort of public utility. Terminated customers may, for a time, attempt to struggle by without utility service. Eventually, families are forced to move and the properties become run down.

Utility companies are only required to give a customer one opportunity to enter an installment payment agreement to catch up on bills. The PUC and State Representative Mr. Gainey doesn't have the lives of poor people in mind. Not only do they UNLAWFULLY allow the utility companies to extort from some a cash payment for the crisis grant (without the crisis grant LIHEAP won't issue its grant), utility companies can transfer the liability of unpaid utility service to any adult living in the household. We have to get the "OUT OF DUMMY LAND!"
