Libertarian joins race for PSC

Kevin Cherry, a Libertarian from Douglas County, has announced his candidacy for the Public Service Commission against Republican incumbent Stan Wise.

Cherry’s campaign will focus on several issues:

· Consumer Advocacy: “I will do my best to provide consumers with affordable energy and telecommunications services. I pledge to never accept campaign money from lobbyists and company executives being regulated by the PSC. Taking this money, in my mind, represents a conflict of interest and I will not play that anti-consumer game. I support a strong consumer advocacy staff to look after the consumer’s best interest. I will hold public meetings throughout my district and Georgia to allow more public input into PSC policies. All stakeholders should be considered fairly when making decisions.
