Ethics is the issue

I’m a modest man; born in Kitchen’s Clinic (Lafayette, GA),educated in public schools- Spending time with my Grandparents as a boy, my Grandmother Jessie, was a Cooper, Granddad was Cecil Thompson, they worked hard all their days, raised nine- All taught do right by your neighbors & speak the truth. My mother picked Cotton along with her siblings; Granddad, a share cropper, small businessmen & farmer, sold Coal in three states for folks to heat their homes. As a child I would tag along, helping Granddad deliver coal. Sharing this is important, so you can understand where I come from. Thompson’s & Cooper represent Scottish origins; my families’ roots here in the U.S. predate the Declaration of Independence; Scottish folks are thrifty, modest, hard working people. So are the Irish, from whence the Boyle legacy hails. Tuesday last, at the Water Board, I needed answers, why a Board would increase rates impacting our poorest & retired, often widowed Women who barely make it on what little they have. The 1st increase in 2014, equaled 175 %, and adds additional increase to that. David Ashburn, Bebe & John Culpepper had no problem doing precisely that. Why should this bother me or you?
