TEXAS AND BROWNSVILLE ABANDON ELDERLY AND POOR DURING RECORD LEVEL HEAT

Every year I get the calls from the elderly and poor.  "Where do I go for help with my utility bills?"  If you are part of the BPUB, the answer is nowhere.  There are programs I can get people on who are not part of a PUB.  But if you receive your utilities from a PUB the State will deny you help.  It is their position the PUB should have their own program.

Brownsville is odd about the PUB.  I know people who live next door to each other within the COB and one is on private service and the other is BPUB.  I have no idea how this works.

All I know is the elderly and poor call me every year, it is either food or AC.  Some people, especially the elderly and disabled must have the AC.  These people are not fortunate enough to be able to make their house energy efficient such as I have.

This is yet but another shame on a city which seems to care not for its people.
