DISCUSSION: A "TIP OF THE HAT" TO PLAIN TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES - "LETTER OF PROTEST" BEING SENT TO PUCO ON AEP RATE INCREASE REQUEST
The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) cites the Plain Township with a "tip of the hat" for a job well done by trustees Leno, Bossart and Giavasis in responding to the American Electric Power (AEP) projected increase of 52% (compounded at 15% per annum) over the next three years.
A thank you an "anonymous" comment to The Report with a link to The Rep's article today containing the quote cited in the accompanying graphic.
The Report suspects that one of the trustees was the commenter. But whether or not a commenter chooses to identify him/herself, The Report publishes anonymous comments so long as the comment is germane to The Report's published item and deals with a commenter's agreement/disagreement with The Report's positions on candidates, issues and officeholders.
So a "tip of the hat" to the Plain Township trustees for looking out for businesses and located in Plain and everydays who reside in the township.
So the question is: Shouldn't all of the townships/villages/cities and, indeed, Stark County itself (via the commissioners) be replicating the Plain Township initiative? How about Trustee Celeste DeHoff out in Tuscarawas Township (who is running for state representative), isn't resistance to the increase a "natural" for her to get on and advocate for within the framework of Tuscarawas Township government?
