A PUBLIC UTILITY WHICH DOES
NOT SERVE THE PUBLIC IN NEED

The other day I was reading in the Dallas Morning News about a program Texas has called Lite-up.  From May through September low income people can get their electric bill paid for by the state - or at least most of it.

I couple I know on a fixed social security income does not use their air conditioning during the day because they cannot afford the electricity.   I thought I will have them apply for the help so they can use their air conditioning during the day.

The application was rejected - reason.  Brownsville Public Utilities Board does not participate in the program. 

The BPUB was prepared to give a small fortune to a convicted felon for a start up airline, but they have nothing for poor senior citizens suffering in this unrelenting heat.

What is it with so many of our leaders?  Why is it they can never get anything right.
