However, PATH couldn't (or wouldn't) answer questions, instead PATH made crap up. Randy's never going to learn, is he?
Emboldened by a question from one participant about the cost of legal counsel to defend the formal challenges, Randy answered a question about how PATH-Allegheny could have possibly had 5.1 full-time employees on an abandoned project in 2012 by telling everyone that "most" of that time was spent answering information requests about its formula rate filings.
Let's see, Randy, 5.1 full-time employees at 2080 hours each equals 10,608 hours spent answering 270 individual questions, "most" of which PATH refused to answer because they were alleged to be harassing, oppressive, annoying and burdensome. That equals 39.28 hours per question, including those where a refusal to answer was merely copied and pasted into PATH's response. That's nearly a work week. It took PATH one full work week to answer each question?
Stop making crap up when you're talking to accountants, okay?
And when given the opportunity to answer questions informally over the phone during the Open Meeting and save all those work hours in 2013? PATH refused and asked interested parties to submit written information requests.
