NO MENTION OF THIS AT ALL PRIOR TO ELECTION DAY WHEN THIS WAS ON THE BALLOT - Emanuel proposes city SKIM OFF residents' savings from electricity deal - THUS MEANING WE SAVE NOTHING AND THE CITY STEALS THE SAVINGS


Mayor Rahm Emanuel is pushing a new plan to skim off some of the savings Chicago electricity customers stand to gain from lower rates expected as part of a bulk power purchasing contract, with the money going for unspecified energy efficiency projects.
The mayor also wants greater control over how much of the deal a company can get.
Some aldermen are skeptical, questioning Emanuel's power grab on the specifics of electrical aggregation, which allows the city to negotiate lower rates on residents' behalf. Last week, 56 percent of Chicago voters agreed with the idea in a referendum question.
Now the rush is on to lock in savings as soon as possible. Emanuel wants to award the power savings deal within a month.
On Wednesday, the City Council Finance Committee was set to discuss the framework put forth by Alds. Edward Burke, 14th, and Patrick O'Connor, 40th, to govern the process of picking firms to undertake the aggregation work, but Emanuel instead introduced his own plan.

WEST SIDE INSIDE DO NOTHING PEGGED THIS BULLSHIT ON SCC BACK ON 01 NOV AND TRIED TO SOUND THE ALARM. HERE IS HIS/HER POST FROM SCC OF ITS COOL WITH YOU:

CHECK THIS OUT, SCC !!!

*** Off Topic, but important nonetheless... ***

Just received a notice from the Shitty regarding voting on a referendum to opt-out for electricity aggregation on 06 November.

Of particular interest on the Q & A formatted correspondence is the third question in the lefthand column:

Q: "WHO WILL BE THE SUPPLIER?"

A: "The City will solicit bids and select the supplier that offers the greatest savings and best customer service."

*** THE BALLOT QUESTION IS AS FOLLOWS:

"Shall the City of Chicago have the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customers who have not opted out of such a program"?

This just screams of yet another clouted contract-in-the-making to further enrich a chosen few. So the city wants to decide what's best for the Sheeple in terms of electricity supplier? Might there be a "Vanecko Power Distributors, LLC" in the pipeline? NO THANKS.

ANYTHING the City touches is because there's ulterior motives. Unless you've been in a coma, the best interests of the legitimate taxpaying people of this hellhole are NOT a priority.

RECEIVING THIS NOTICE AFTER MANY PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY EARLY VOTED IS PROOF THAT THE CITY'S ON SOME BULLSHIT.

This last minute mailing reeks of bullshit. Please take the time to read it and respond accordingly if you haven't already voted.

The city is forcing everyone into their electricity scam. You must opt out of the program or the city will automatically enroll you. The city is scheduled to have a website set up soon for you to opt out of the program. The city is scheduled to send out instructions by late December.

Opt out! Starve the beast!!

Watch this hand as I save you money. Don't watch the other hand while I take damn near every cent you stupid bitches voted to save. How in the fuck are you lemmings so stupid to believe that the democrats will give you anything? If they put a democrat initiative on the ballot giving me free gasoline for life, I'd vote against it because they'd manage to make the deal for you to get 1 gallon of gas per year for life, and somehow your property taxes would pay for 7 gallons.

Still got money for planter medians and fake brick sidewalks. You know before they even put in a planter median they have to line the sewer underneath, and that costs more than the median! No one tells you that! You might say good, it's lined now so it's better, right? No, because after the median is there they will never replace it with a bigger one, so they also are responsible for all the flooded basements of the future. They will pay for all this senseless bullshit with your pensions, and the Civic Club is helping them steal your retirement when they go along with pension reform.

Better pucker up taxpayers when our corrupt thieving politicians want to "rush" a deal through the city council. Remember the parking deal and the speed cameras.
