As we get closer to qualifying day, the candidates are beginning to come out of the woodwork seeking your votes after ignoring you for the last four years. One candidate who is showing up is raising some eyebrows and is telling a deeper story. For the first time in a long time, Twinkle Cavanaugh is on the campaign trail.
In the last two elections, she had an easy go of it. She had underfunded unknown challengers that still got 30% of the vote, showing she has some high negatives. Her arrogance speaks volumes.
This time, things are different. She can no longer run on her catchy name and say she's fighting the liberal agenda. She has a record to run on. A history of 12 Years of rate increases and a hidden tax of over $125 million put on the citizens of Alabama. She's in trouble, and she knows it.
She cares nothing about an average family even while she claims to know what it's like facing financial hardship sitting at the table paying bills as a mother and grandmother, which she has never encountered with her husband being a veterinarian and her making $100,000 a year on the PSC. You know, they probably could have gotten away with the four increases last year if not for one thing.
After securing re-election to the PSC, they voted to raise the rates two days later, proving that this den of thieves built on a house of cards does not care anything about the average Alabama citizen. They demonstrated that. That was the biggest in your face to the good citizens of Alabama. After rewarding them with re-election, they raised your rates two days later.
They hide behind their Christianity. I guess they have forgotten that the love of money is the root of all evil. How three people can do their brethren like this is incomprehensible.
This should undoubtedly prove to you they have no morals, no scruples, and only care about themselves. Come next March, let's send a message that we do care. We will not forget. Like the peasants of old with pitchforks and torches, we will storm the Castle to overthrow Queen Twinkle. We must show them that we care about our fellow man. Take back the PSC
