I changed mine but only got one bill this year

Is it even legal to turn peoples power off in the winter? Especially when 30 days puts you peak winter at the end of December start of January?

Just wondering why this needs to be posted on social media? Why isn’t this being directly delivered to the people you’re talking about(who’s to say they even see this post) DAMMM ELECTIONS MUST BE OVER! 🫣😂😅

That's fucking sad. Some people can't afford power. I know if my family had a threat of no power our whole family be paying it. Prayers to those that are suffering.

I've changed mine probably about 30 times in thw last 2 years. Idk why it keeps going to you guys. Also 2 or 3 that you have sent me were Carolyn Jeans and i let you guys know. Please change the Street names up Petow Loop Extension.

Welcome to your newly elected representatives!!

Merry Christmas! Now freeze! 🥶 Should have been done in the summertime not winter and especially not at Christmas time

I’ve only received one in almost two years

As one of these people we all knew since September … and it’s only working ppl just FYI !

I want my power bill paid if household working people are getting their power bills paid bc we all know who works n doesn't work...
