This past Tuesday (June 21), Tri-State executive vice president and general manager Ken Anderson accepted an invitation to participate on the “Glenn Beck Show,” broadcast live nationally on Fox News Channel. The theme of the show, titled “America’s energy under attack,” focused on the increasing number of misguided national energy policies and unreasonable environmental regulations that are detrimental to the U.S. energy industry.
“I was given an opportunity to briefly provide Tri-State’s perspective on some of these national issues that are affecting our operations and our ability to continue to produce and deliver affordable electricity to our member co-ops’ end-use consumers,” Anderson said. “The opportunity aligned well with our continuing affordability campaign and presented a chance to further champion our cause on behalf of electric co-op consumers.”
Anderson’s fellow guests on the hour-long program included CEOs from the American Petroleum Institute, Gulf Oil and Murray Energy Corp. “Each industry sector has its own unique concerns, circumstances and challenges,” Anderson said, “but our overriding shared commitment to using domestic resources to the best of our ability in order to protect affordable energy prices for our consumers, businesses and communities came through loud and clear.”
