We knew Exelon and Pepco were determined to push their bad deal through by any means necessary.
We've now learned that Pepco made a $25 million payment to the city, prior to Mayor Bowser announcing her support for the merger. Mayor Bowser then used that $25 million to secure a stadium for D.C. United at Buzzard Point. Several of Mayor Bowser's major donors stand to make a multi-million dollar windfall from their real estate holdings once the stadium is built. Meanwhile, we're left with Exelon's higher rates and worse service.
Help us fight back. Testify next week that D.C. doesn't want this bad deal.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Public Service Commission will hold public hearings to listen to our concerns about the merger. We encourage you to email the commission to sign up to testify. We need to show the commission that D.C. doesn't support this deal. We expect the hearings to run from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. The hearing will be held at 1325 G Street, N.W., Suite 800. We'll have refreshments.
