Election Day...

Though it's only local issues, some of them are looming very important over the heads of all who live on "this side" of the river.

Largest among them are the shenanigans at our local "public utility" as outlined in this summary I found online when I "Googled" up the keywords:

BPU's Challenges Could Boost KCK Electric Bills

We have been hearing these stories for quite a while now; two weeks ago one of the indicted in the State probe of the missing $400,000 took his own life. Then there are the mentioned millions in EPA fines the utility is liable for...In the run up to the current election one of the sitting board members said that the board members aren't responsible for what goes on at the utility!

Needless to say, he didn't get my vote!

If they aren't responsible then why are we voting for them?

The evening news should be interesting!

May the week be kind to each of you!

I have been so mindless of late. Did you lose your pension? That is terrible to even contemplate. I have not followed the news of the economy since new years.. not much anyway.

How can I catch up on you?

Wow - and good for you for voting in a local election. So much is at stake locally, and people for the most part don't pay enough attention.

I agree with Riot Kitty, these off-season local elections often get overlooked, and they have consequences. I'm glad to know you are paying attention and exercising your civic responsibilities.
