Time to re­place en­tire board

The Daily Herald - - OPINION - John C. Camp­bell

It can’t be true that the PUD would spend $18 mil­lion to read your me­ter! I don’t know what else to call it but in­san­ity. What was wrong with the way it was?

The fel­low that has read our me­ter the last few years, here north of the em­pire of Marysville, on 51st Av­enue, is very con­sci­en­tious and re­spect­ful. He al­ways reads the me­ter on time, I al­ways got the bill on time, I al­ways paid it on time and the PUD al­ways cashed my check on time! So what is the prob­lem?

Leave the sys­tem alone, and save $18 mil­lion.

I know what the prob­lem is. Un­der-qual­i­fied and over­paid peo­ple at the PUD. It is time to change lead­er­ship. There has been ques­tions for years about the man­age­ment. It is time for a change and an im­prove­ment.

Cit­i­zen elected com­mis­sion­ers must go, ev­ery one of them.

The Her­ald pa­per of June 17, 2015, front page, writes about an ethics in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

I want to know what hap­pened to the $800,000 that the PUD wasted. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that there was a vi­o­la­tion of an ethics pol­icy.

This pub­lic util­ity is sup­posed to be­long to the peo­ple. So it is time to take it back and find new man­age­ment.

You know that your rates are go­ing up to cover this and other waste­ful de­ci­sions.

I want to hear from other cit­i­zens about this sub­ject be­cause we have to do some­thing now!
