Your Comments are Needed!

YOUR COMMENTS NEEDED STILL! Tell the Public Service Commission of WV (PSC) that you still don't want Longview.

Please send comments to the PSC.
Here are some talking points.
Here is a Form Letter to the PSC if you don't have time to write a regular letter.

Please circulate as many copies as you can!

Send your letter to

Public Service Commission of West Virginia
c/o Ms. Sandra Squire, Executive Secretary
PO Box 812
Charleston WV 25323
1-800-344-5113 (in WV)

Case Number 05-1467-E-CN, Longview Power

Please remember to copy Governor Manchin and your local representatives (especially the County Commission) on your letter! Their addresses are below.

WRITE A LETTER, MAKE A PHONE CALL, AND SEND AN E MAIL

Start with your local newspaper, the Mon County Commission, and the Mon County Development Authority. If you do not live in Monongalia County, call or write to your county commission as well. Work your way up from there. Mail to U.S Senators and Representatives in Washington is slow, so please consider writing to their state/local offices or faxing your letter to Washington.

Here are a few tips on writing effective letters to public officials (from the League of Women Voters Guide to Government Officials):

  • Be Brief (one issue per letter)

  • Be Courteous

  • Be Specific

  • Be Original

  • Be Available (include your full name, address, and telephone number)

  • Be Early (donít wait; write NOW!)

  • WEST VIRGINIA OFFICIALS
