PHOTO INDEX: FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY AND SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON.
CHENEY LIKES HILLARY
Former Vice President Dick Cheney made an interesting revelation on Fox News Sunday. Cheney revealed that he thought Hillary Clinton would have made a better President than Barack Obama. Cheney told Chris Wallace that she was competent in her job as Secretary of State and that while he disagreed with her policies he thought she was more qualified and principled. You’re not the only one Mr. Vice President, you’re not the only one thinking that thought.
CANDIDATE SAYS INVESTIGATE
Luzerne County Council candidate Kathy Dobash says the conduct of UGI during the recent Irene storm needs to be looked at very closely. I understand that the utility company was maybe taken aback for a few days but it is apparent these people had no plan and were still in their mid 70s mindset living fat and happy off the profits they made by charging customers for excellent power in good weather and no power when a true emergency reared its head. Anyway, here’s Dobash’s letter:
It is obvious UGI Electric failed to recognize the severity of the damage caused by Hurricane Irene.UGI let the public down in the slow response to provide the service to those in need. Federal and State legislators should have hearings along with the PA Public Utility Commission to investigate. UGI was negligent in providing electrical service and getting outside utility companies to come and assist with restoration of power in Northeastern PA and our own Luzerne County. Fairmont, Hemlock, Lake, Lehman, Union, Ross, Huntington, Hunlock, Dallas, Kingston, Jackson Townships and Dallas Borough were without service for an extended length of time. I request PA State officials to enact legislation and call for hearings which demand an explanation about their slow response to Luzerne County customers. A plan of corrective action is required so thousands of customers will not be left without electrical service a full week after the storm. Sincerely,
Kathleen M. Dobash
Luzerne County Council Candidate
