May 11, 2018

NEW ORLEANS - The allegations and subsequent confirmation of astroturfing during the New Orleans City Council's consideration of the proposal to construct a New Orleans Power Station fly in the face of the dignity, courtesy, and respect of traditional public discourse vital to our democratic process.

While we acknowledge Entergy's efforts to swiftly investigate the matter and produce a report of its findings, as regulators, the City Council owes a fiduciary obligation to the citizens of New Orleans that we must honor. These serious allegations during a monumental proceeding by the City Council warrant a fully independent review by the Council or by a third party investigator hired by the Council to transparently vet the facts of this matter.
