More than 100 people came out to the meeting, in spite of a torrential downpour, and five state legislators, three county commissioners and a representative from U.S. Senator Joe Manchin's office came to listen. Conspicuously absent from the gathering were Potomac Edison and the West Virginia Public Service Commission.
After listening for nearly two hours, the panel showed real anger during their remarks, and most importantly, promised action. We will continue to work with our legislators to ensure that it happens.
I've seen a whole lot of dubious and unethical actions on the part of FirstEnergy, Potomac Edison's corporate parent, over the past several years. But even those dirty, underhanded schemes paled in comparison to what I heard last night.
FirstEnergy, you are truly despicable.
