APS Customers: Two More Public Comment Opportunities

The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) has one more public comment session for the Arizona Public Service (APS) rate case. If you are an APS customer, we strongly encourage you to attend and to provide oral comments! It is vital for the ACC to hear from the people who will be affected by the outcome of its decision.

APS Rate Case Public Comment Session

Monday, April 10
6 p.m.
The Historic Yuma Theatre
254 S. Main Street, Yuma (map)

The proposed settlement agreement would increase the monthly service charge for most APS customers by 87.5%, a big and unjustified increase that would discourage energy efficiency. Please ask the ACC to modify this rate and to better adapt enrollment in time-of-use rates, so customers can choose what best fits their schedules.

We also encourage you to sign on to a letter to the ACC on this important matter.

You are the Party

Posted on: March 3rd, 2017

I’m a volunteer for YCDP. From time to time, I hear someone suggest that the local party organization is under-performing — “Why isn’t the Party doing THIS?”…or, “The Party never __________” or “Why don’t they _________ like they do in ______?”

Local Democrats seem to have some fuzzy idea that YCDP is some marvel of purpose and efficiency with lots of people and resources. It’s hard to keep a straight face when people complain. A bluntly honest answer might be, “It would happen if you weren’t too lazy to do it.”

A local political party is a framework for things to happen. More than any other organization, it is only people. No people, no action. If you’re content with that, that’s the way it’ll be.
