Patrick Daley Thompson campaign contribution records soar to $400,000?

Patrick Daley Thompson's A-1 financial disclosure statement lists contributors who gave at least $1,000. As of 3/26, contributions totaled $290,000. 91% of these dollars came from businesses or addresses outside the ward boundaries. Add to this figure the amount of cash fundraisers, Political action committees mailers, and donations from people who gave under $1,000 contributions and the total about could easily soar pass $400,000. Is this impressive or cause for concern?

Did you receive a CLEANENERGYOPTION.com letter?

Scam:

Scam:
2/12/2014 - Notice concerning a Clean Energy Option letter that you may have received
Notice concerning a Clean Energy Option letter that you may have received. The following is the response from Gabel Associates (the Township's energy aggregation team)

With regard to the Clean Energy Option letter that many customers have received, we got a very quick response from JCP&L/PSE&G about the legitimacy of this letter. They have indicated that this letter has no connection to JCP&L. PSE&G has even gone so far as to notify the BPU of this scam letter and has issued a cease and desist letter to Clean Energy Option. It appears to be a coincidence that customers are receiving this letter at the same approximate time as the JCP&L enrollment letter, but a further investigation may give us more information.

With that said - we can very confidently tell customers to disregard this letter and if they wish to remain in the SHREC CEA program they should NOT send back their customer information on the bottom of the letter.

  • They have been calling (alot) also with this scam,

  • I got a letter yesterday. I knew something was fishy when 1) it was addressed to my daughter and the light bill isn't in her name and 2) our last name was misspelled. If it was legit, it would have been addressed to me with the correct spelling of my last name. I threw it away.
