Issues

2012 Campaign themes

Angelle's campaign committee outlines his top priorities for the District 2 seat of the Louisiana PSC on his official campaign website:

  • Regulation. Not Strangulation.

Excerpt: "As Public Service Commissioner, Scott Angelle will work hard to protect consumers. Drawing on an extensive knowledge of the energy industry, as much as anyone to ever serve on the P.S.C., he’ll ensure that regulation does not lead to strangulation, so we can have economic recovery, growth, and prosperity."[6]

  • Affordable energy. Create jobs.

Excerpt: "Since 1972, there have been six recessions in the United States, each of them preceded by a spike in energy prices. High utility costs not only hurt families at home, but they stifle the growth of our small businesses and economy. Scott Angelle will fight to make sure we have the reliable, low cost energy we need to grow and prosper in our State and Nation."[6]
