Jen Metzger is with Citizens for Local Power, the group advised by attorney Dan Duthie. Metzger says that while the group was formed initially solely to oppose the utility merger, she sees the group continuing with its local power mission, and taking what she calls a negative decision by the PSC down a positive road.
