STATEMENT: As PSC Sides with FPL, Gillum Backs Consumers on Turkey Point
Tallahassee, Fla. — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today:
“As the Public Service Commission met earlier today, it’s important to remind Floridians what is at stake with these meetings. The PSC’s decisions affect every Floridian in this state, and we need consumers to have a real voice on it — not Governor Scott and the state’s biggest corporate players.
“Instead of forcing everyday Floridians to continue ponying up money for Florida Power & Light, the PSC should instead force FPL to pay for their Turkey Point nuclear energy license. Working people in this state face enough financial hardships as it is — they should not have to fork over more money to an enormous corporation who controls most of the state’s major energy decisions. Corporations have run roughshod over this state for too long, and when I’m Governor it will finally end.”
