Manufacture Alabama announces endorsements for incumbent Public Service Commissioners Chip Beeker and Jeremy Oden.

“Manufacture Alabama is proud to endorse both Commissioner Chip Beeker and Commissioner Jeremy Oden for their re-election to the Public Service Commission,” said George Clark, President of Manufacture Alabama. “Both Commissioner Beeker and Commissioner Oden have contributed to an unprecedented period of stable governance and certainty at the Public Service Commission while at the same time the consumer has not seen dramatic rate increases which is very positive to business, industry and the average household. Even while we have witnessed a historical transition from traditional energy sources to more and more natural gas generation processes, Commissioner Beeker and Commissioner Oden have both ensured that equal review and fair decision-making lead to the best outcomes for the people of Alabama.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement from Manufacture Alabama,” said Commissioner Chip Beeker. “Being in business for myself most of my working life, I know how important low rates and dependable energy are to keep a business profitable and successful. During my time in office, I have always been proud of the industry Alabama attracts and I owe that to having organizations such as Manufacture Alabama who are proactive and focused on the betterment of our state. New industry equals more jobs and more jobs lead to a booming economy. I am excited to continue the work to bring in more industry to our state and keeping energy rates affordable, sustainable and dependable.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Alabama’s tremendous manufacturers,” said Commissioner Jeremy Oden. “As your Public Service Commissioner, I am fighting for America First energy independence that supports affordable, reliable power production for our incredible Made in Alabama manufacturers. It is humbling to know that our manufacturers see that I will always have their back and that I will continue to defend them from government overreach and shoot down the radical Green New Deal agenda. Thank you to Manufacture Alabama for its strong support and for what they do to support the growth of good-paying, 21stcentury jobs in every corner of our great state.”
