PUD rates should be fair for everybody

Print Article

No one likes to pay more for electricity. The fact is that increasing costs increases rates. Since 2015 the PUD commission has kept these increases balanced at no more than 2 percent per year. This steady rate-increase policy will not continue if you do not vote and vote carefully. I am a Grant County resident concerned about my electric rates. I would like to see all users pay their proportionally fair share. We already have two farm irrigators on the commission with two more farm candidates vying for positions. With four out of five commissioners being irrigators do you think farm rates will increase? Who will pay the difference? We residents will pay. An effective, fair PUD commission should represent everyone: residents, irrigation and business groups. Vote for the candidates who will represent all of us. Vote Terry Brewer and Patti Paris.
