Members of a new advocacy group announced Tuesday that they hope to provide a voice for consumers in Jefferson City. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.
The non-profit group is called Consumers Council of Missouri...It's not a government agency.
One of the co-founders is Alberta Slavin...She's a former member of the Public Service Commission that regulates utility rates in Missouri and was a co-founder of the Utility Consumers Council, a consumer group that disbanded nearly 30 years ago.
Slavin says she's delighted to be working on consumer issues once again.
Slavin says anyone can join her new group, Consumers Council of Missouri for a ten dollar membership fee.
She says the goal is to sign up thousands of consumers across the state.
While Slavin's previous consumer group focused exclusively on utilities, she says consumers need an independent voice for a variety of issues.
And Slavin says consumers are left out in the cold, quite literally when it comes to utilities...So she says that will continue to be a priority for her as she works with the newly-formed consumer advocacy group.
