The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) has confirmation from an energy consultant that Hagan for Commissioner contributor Alliance for Real Energy Options is embarked on a strategy that could cost Stark Countians dramatic increases in residential and small business electricity costs.
Here is the quote from the consultant:
Stark County voters, when they meet Hagan on the campaign trail, should be questioning him on this relationship and making an assessment on whether or not John Hagan is for "everyday people and business" or for lining the pockets of the big boys of the corporate world.This group [Alliance for Real Energy Options] has been wanting to go to open market in Ohio since 2006. Many of them sell electric generation throughout the U.S. Unfortunately, Ohio generation prices would have to rise significantly in many parts of the state for their prices to be competitive.
