Gloucester Township, Camden County, NJ
Just across the Delaware river from Philadelphia, Gloucester Township, gives Chicago a run for its more than questionable dealings.
As if it weren't bad enough that Mayor (Comcast) Mayer, and Council, have township residents locked into an exclusive agreement with Comcast for the next almost 19 years on cable TV,
the township showed another "sleeping arrangement" with Comcast once again.
Residents of Gloucester Township began getting letters in the mail, alerting them that their electric, AND gas suppliers would now be under "Energy Rewards" an Xfinity/Comcast company.
The letter from the Comcast owned company says, "We are excited that you chose Energy Rewards for your energy supply.
The letter they received from the GAS company, South Jersey Gas, states "Congratulations on choosing to participate in the NJ energy choice program".
Last but not least, PSE&G' letter states, "This letter confirms YOUR choice of a new electric third party supplier.
The problem being, that these residents chose NOTHING. They made no switches, no requests were ever made. Gloucester Township Mayor and Council made that choice for them.
The township is allowing Comcast to take over these utilities, making the residents have to "Opt out" not the way it is normally done as people making their OWN choice.
It might be interesting to know that Mayor, David Mayer is not only the FULL TIME Mayor of Gloucester Township, but he is a FULL TIME LOBBYIST for that same Comcast corporation,
or as Comcast would term it, NJ Director of "Legislative Affairs". Some might ask the "conflict of interest" or collusion questions.
The energy supplier deal price is for a limited time, and Comcast customers, know where that is headed, just check your cable bill.
