Utilities prosper while elderly suffer


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— I would like to ask a question. Why do all of the utility companies get raises when our elderly people that can not work any more and help themselves haven’t had a raise in two or three years? Is that how our older generation that helped build our country is treated? This is supposed to be America.

Maybe it is time for people to come together and give the Public Service Commission a ride out of our beautiful country and take it back from the rich who are getting rich from hard-working people and our elderly.

People need to take a long, hard look at what is going on in our country and most of our state. These utility companies are just a rip off. They know people need them so they are taking advantage of people and the higher ups are helping this happen.

We the people need to take our country back.
