It is important to show up and speak up – do your very best to over-fill the meeting place.  A large turnout speaks volumes – more than you can imagine.

After a roughly 30-minute presentation to Littlestown Borough Council members delivered by Keith Gabage, senior director of corporate development for Aqua America, wanting to make an offer to buy Littlestown’s water system, it was evident that it likely wasn’t for sale.

Although it’s been said in the past that we want Aqua Utilities out of Florida, we have never, let me repeat, never suggested and/or meant that all IOUs should be taken over by government.

What we want is good quality of service at fair rates, regardless of who the provider is.  What we don’t want is to be scammed by a national water profiteer that only cares about profit, regardless of the cost to its customers!

If a local IOU can provide what we desire – fine.  If they can’t – then there needs to be an alternative.

Finally, Aqua’s “spin” about IOUs being the only solution to this nation’s water problems cannot be genuinely supported with the facts.  As an example, a municipal system, using the same monies that Aqua collects through increased rates and profits sent to Aqua America, would be able to provide the same, if not better Quality of Service.

All the monies collected would stay in Florida, for Floridians and their economy.

If you take Aqua’s inflated request for rate increases, and their ”profit margin” out of the equation, their “spin” loses it’s rpm!
