Senator Williams and Representatives Howse, Boyd and Upchurch to Host Fourth Annual Energy Expo
January 18, 2019
Cleveland-area state lawmakers will hold a community event this weekend to help residents struggling to pay high wintertime energy bills. State Senate Assistant Minority Whip Sandra Williams (D-Cleveland) and Representatives Stephanie Howse (D-Cleveland), Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland) and Terrence Upchurch (D-Cleveland) will facilitate the Fourth Annual Energy Expo tomorrow, Saturday, January 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00p.m.
“Cold weather adds extra financial burdens to us all,” said Senator Williams. “Many people are unaware that there are electric and gas programs that can curb energy bill costs, so this annual event is meant to help Cleveland residents explore the options available to them.”
The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland, CHN Housing Partners, Dominion Energy, The Illuminating Company and Cleveland Public Power will be in attendance to help educate people about their energy bill options and set up payment plans if they are struggling to pay their current bills.
“It is important for me to make sure people are informed,” said Senator Williams. “This event is always well received because there are many people in our community that need help. I want them to know that I understand the challenges they face and I am willing to help in any way that I can.”
Residents who are unable to attend the Energy Expo are encouraged to contact Senator Williams’ office at (614) 466-4857.
