I’m having a hard time understanding why the citizens of this state continue to elect state officials and a legislature that shows little interest in serving those who voted for them.

The power grid failure in February cost lives and has left utility companies with huge debt that will, over time, be repaid through higher bills to consumers. We had a similar incident in 2011. Nothing was done after that event to require appropriate winterization of the power generation equipment. And nothing of consequence was done by our legislature this year to address the issue.
