PUC’s Kon­cila is do­ing her job

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Diana Mon­tez,

“Loose cannon at Colorado PUC un­der­mines agency’s cred­i­bil­ity,” March 5 Vin­cent Car­roll opin­ion col­umn.

Vin­cent Car­roll’s lat­est pedan­tic di­a­tribe comes at the ex­pense of Frances Kon­cilja, a Colorado Pub­lic Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion mem­ber ap­pointed by our gov­er­nor last year.

Car­roll states Kon­cilja is like “a bull in a china shop,” “ra­di­at­ing per­sonal hos­til­ity” to­wards Black Hills En­ergy. Kon­cilja and an­other com­mis­sioner had the au­dac­ity to vote against Black Hills’ re­quest for a rate hike to the tune of $8.5 mil­lion, to be shoul­dered by the peo­ple of south­ern Colorado.

Car­roll’s col­umn does ex­actly what he ac­cuses her of do­ing, namely, us­ing his po­si­tion to car­i­ca­ture Kon­cilja as an evil dictator. In fact, Mr. Car­roll, she is do­ing her job.

I sug­gest Car­roll mind his own busi­ness (like the wor­ri­some, sky­rock­et­ing prices of homes in the Denver area) and let peo­ple with real jobs do theirs.
