The Town Council of the Town of defend the above entitled Issaquah, Washington, does ordain the above entitled PUGET SOUND POWER & LIGHT COMPANY WHAT ABOUT RATE REDUCTIONST To our CuStomers: There has been quite a lot of political thundering lately about cheap power and rate reductions and, of course, lightning has struck us. The disturbance appears more political than economic, for we already have cheap power and plenty of it. It looks like a case of "making a mountain of a mole hill." Doesn't it really seem out of tune to contend that the private utilities should further suffer through still lower rates when the order of the day is to increai com- modity prices and build back the purchasing power of our people? The tremendous increase i~ taxes, commodity prices going up, and our cost of doing business mounting--these conditions make for higher and not lower rates. Increased tax burdens eat up rate reductions. Now the fly in the ointment seems to be the idea that utility rates did not come down with the cost o[ living; so some think there must be something wrong somewhere and it must be that the public is being robbed. Once you realize the [acts, the answer is quite simple. O[ course our electric rates have not coine do,wn o[ late with the coil of living--they never went skyrocketing when the cost of living did, instead they have been constantly reduced. Our income per kilowatt hour [or domestic an([ [arm service is about 70070 less now than it was in 191 ~, while the cost of living is still'more than 28% above the 191 $ level and is today going up and up. Even durin~ the ioul~h depression years of 19~1 and 19~2 our electric rates were reduced to the aggregate amount of $ 1,000,000, which cumulative benefit to customers, of course, has carried on into 193~. Naturally the cheaper we can sell our service, the better we like it. This, I believe, is true of all those who conceive their business in the light of "empire building." Lowm" rates mean more benefits to customers and greater security to the company providing they do not come at the expense of the investor and employee. Both invested savings and labor are entitled to fair wages. Neither customer, investor nor employee should profit at the expense of the other. They should profit only throul~h mutual benefits rendered. Sincerely, PeISI I)lHlr P.
