Wilson Energy marks $13M in utility bill savings – Wilson Times

Wilson Energy customers have saved almost $13 million collectively in the 10 months since rates were reduced nearly 18 percent for residential customers as a result of the sale of assets to Duke Energy Progress.

“I am just proud of Wilson and pleased to do my part with the legislative delegation on their behalf,” said state Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash. “I don’t live there, so I’m not with the constituents on a daily basis as I am in Rocky Mount, but I’m hoping this savings is a big help across the community, particularly with the citizens who need the most help.”

Before Bryant headed to the General Assembly, she was a city councilwoman in Rocky Mount and served as a commissioner with the North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency, where she worked to reduce utility costs in Wilson, Rocky Mount and the other 30 member cities. In recent years, she and Sen. Buck Newton, R-Wilson, sponsored legislation to pave the way for the asset sale to Duke. (Wilson Times)

Mad Now! Not!

Damn shame that no black man is exempt from what is going on today as it relates to police interactions with black males that lead to injury and/or death.

Mad Now! Not!

I was mad dating back to the late 80’s when I got actively engaged in Community Activism and found very few folk in the community speaking out publicly against injustice.

I have been speaking out all these years so I get excited just watching folk that should have been excited back then, get excited now.

At-risk Black Males

Damn shame when videos capture things but then they are twisted to justify right and wrong. But the final answer should be right at the end of the day.

At-risk Black Males

I remember attending and speaking out at school board and other meetings where it was being said young black males were At-risk. I said ALL BLACK MEN were AT-RISK!
