  1. It is not uncommon for public utilities to utilize community giving programs to fulfill social responsibility, meet regulatory mandates, engage customers, and support diversity initiatives. I’m glad that Mayor Jung was able to get OCPA to invest in our community.

    • Rob – you are right and so is Amy – it is not uncommon – and it is a nice event. My problem is that I would rather our utilities lower our prices or pay staff more rather than spend it to “engage” us. We are all fully in need of public utilities – they do not need to PR us.

  2. Though this seems like a nice event – I do not understand why any of our “utility” companies spend money in this way, All utilities (water, electricity, gas, sewer, trash, etc) are part of the common good and spending money on entertainment is not what we the residents want. All we want from OCPA is clean energy at the lowest prices possible. Please stop lobbying us and perform your purpose.

    • I am not sure why OCPA is involved in this, either, although I acknowledge that there may be a completely valid reason that I’m not aware of. That said, I am always happy to see events that support diversity of all types and that bring our community together.
