Smart Meters

Last week we wrote about Glendale Water and Power, smart meters and the unresponsiveness of our government. We ran across a local video about Glendale Water and Power installing a Smart Meter at a private residence and the people living in the home not happy about it and then becoming sick. Urban Toot doesn’t have an opinion if Smart Meters cause illness. We really aren’t qualified (although we do find it interesting). What we do think is that when the citizens aren’t happy the local government should listen to the people and make them happy.

I was recently in a Third Grade classroom where the lesson was about Abraham Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address. While I’m sure that you’ve heard it before I’ll mention it again.

and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Let’s hope that the utility companies of the world remember that they are part of our local government. Government of the people, by the people, for the people. Perhaps the utility companies should adopt a philosophy along the lines of:

Utility Companies of the People, By the People, For the People,

It’s crazy but it’s an idea that might just work!

Oh and on the video they reference Glendale Action the website
