Commission Chair DeAnn Walker resigns from the Public Utility Commission of Texas as of March 1st, 2021. This is great news for those of you who are following the fallout from the storms or who went through the horrible disaster, like myself. Jesus Christ, man, someone, somewhere needs to be held accountable and this is about as good as it is going to get.
Lt Governor Dan Patrick called for her resignation and she resigned a few hours later. Lets not forget the Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, who is a character himself, should also resign, along with his gas and oil money corrupted leader, Greg Abbott. Dan Patrick once said that our grandparents wouldn’t mind risking covid to have the economy open AND he offered a million dollar reward for proof that the election was stolen from Donald Trump. These are the freaks that are running the freak-show here in Texas.
Mrs. Walker was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott in 2017 after Donna Nelson, the previous chair of the commission, resigned that same year. Donna Nelson was appointed by Rick Perry, who infamously said that Texans would rather go without power than to face federal regulations. Donna Nelson served as PUC Chair from 2008 to 2017. That’s 9 years. DeAnn Walker served for 4 years. Yes she deserves all of the shame but so does this Donna Nelson character who more than likely let utility companies run rampant from 2008 to 2017. Better yet, she was there during the 2011 storm and apparently did nothing to improve the grid after that.
Now lets see the next clown that the Republican leaders are going to appoint…
