Let’s Pay More for Electricity … Because We’re “Fair”
The PSC wants Maryland utilities to agree to a goal of doling out 25% of their contracts to minority contractors. This is also the goal the O’Malley administration uses for state contracts.
I am absolutely in favor of companies seeking out minority contractors. However, the goal should be to provide electricity, gas, telephone service, etc. to customers at the LOWEST COST; not providing cushy contracts to members of various discriminated classes. Ditto for state contracts.
While Martin and his fellow tin cup governors are seeking a bailout from the Messiah, he also wants you to subsidize his re-election campaign. It’s just another day in the Not So Free State.
