Powell objects to utilities price hikes
Updated: Sep 20
Niyoka Powell recently appeared before the Public Utilities Commission, objecting to proposed rate hikes.
She voiced her concern that the hikes would jeopardize businesses and families alike, and potentially exacerbate the homeless crisis already besetting Providence.
The rising cost of living has been a theme of Powell's campaign, which has focused on the pocketbook issues that are central to the working people of District 1.
