Maureen Kirk, Bill Connelly respond to my request for help with PG&E rate hike

20 Sep

Thanks to Maureen Kirk, my District 3 super, for responding to my plea for help with PG&E’s latest G-snatch. She asked me to nail down a date and time for a meeting – not so easy.

I ask people  – “what’s good for you?” and they come back with, “why don’t you just set a date so I can complain about it?” Well, not exactly in those words, but you know what I mean. So, I’ve tried to get ahold of the library room – but they’ve taken the mechanism off the website. I e-mailed the gal who had helped me in past, but no response. So, today or tomorrow I will call  or go over there. I’m busy as hell right now, wouldn’t you know it.

So, that’s where I’m at with this “public” effort.  

Bill Connelly also responded, but I’m not sure what exactly to make of his response:

I agree that PG&E seems to get every rate hike they request. On the other side the state requirements that more power come from solar and wind may be a complication. The avoidance of using coal power is also an issue. Also it would be better to pay any solar excess from homes and business full value to induce more panels.

Is he attempting to rationalize the rate increase, or what? I’ll have to get back to him when I get a chance, I’m off to work. As usual I will keep you posted.

    Connelly has certainly become a politician since his roofing days! First he agrees with you on something you didn’t exactly say, then he pretends to be informed by making vague allusions. Ultimately flapping his jaws and saying nothing, the quintissential paradox of political lingo. “Would you like to eat lunch?” Response: “I certainly agree with you, however I feel that food sometimes has consequences, and we may need to look into that further”.

      Well, Maureen has been paying attention, and she always responds pretty quick to my questions/requests.

      I’m having trouble getting ahold of the library staff, I’ll have to go over there today and see what the situation with the room is, see what days are available.
