City Councilwoman Connie Robinson Expresses Support for Petition to Deny Vectren Rate Increases

Councilwoman Connie Robinson

Citing high levels of unemployment and staggering utility bills of her 4th Ward constituents, Evansville City Councilwoman Connie Robinson today has announced that she is supporting Councilman John Friend’s petition to the Indiana Utilities Regulatory Commission to hold all rate increase request hearings from Vectren in Evansville where the rates would impact Hoosiers and to deny any and all rate increases until such time that neighboring areas have caught up to Vectren’s prices.

Councilwoman Robinson repeated her mantra from supporting the smoking ordinance in 2010 with her recognizable quote “I am my brother’s keeper”. Robinson stated that she is always going to look out for her constituents who are among the most affected by excessive utility costs due to the age of the housing stock in her ward.

Councilwoman Robinson has also expressed support for Vectren to speak before the Evansville City Council to explain their positions as opposed to accepting the offer of a one-on-one meeting with Vectren PR people.


  1. Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
    Going to the candidate’s debate.
    Laugh about it, shout about it
    When you’ve got to choose
    Every way you look at this you lose.

    Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio,
    Our nation turns it’s lonely eyes to you.
    What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
    Jolting Joe has left and gone away,
    Hey hey hey.

    (Mrs. Robinson—Paul Simon)


  2. If anybody thinks that ole Connie hasn’t cashed campaign contribution checks from Vectren they are sadly mistaken.
