Austin Interfaith Fights Energy Rate Hike on Churches & Poor


“Church leaders are banding together to fight a proposed Austin Energy rate increase that they say will hurt their ability to help the poor in the community.

Thursday morning, Austin Interfaith gathered and spoke during public comments to let the city council know they oppose the increase.  ‘This could affect the community of faith’s ability to do the ministries they need to do,’ said Pastor Fred Krebs of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in East Austin.”
