    Where is our power!

    I live in Lansing Michigan the capital city of Michigan and home to Americas angriest mayor and we have been without power for over a week. The city is powered by its own unregulated power company. For the last week we in the city have been told nothing but untruths about when and how the power would be restored. Many in the city are going broke staying in motels and eating out because it is to cold to stay in their homes. City government and the leaders of the power company have published many estimates that have not come true. We need answers and we need power for our city and families we are tired and frustrated. Please see the Lansing Board of Water and Light facebook page for just a small sample of the outrage in town.
