Good morning, Don –
I write with the attitude of “Ya BASTA (Enough already)!!” Please, if you think this appropriate, publish it:
What beautiful and forward-thinking our country has shown with all the new 1st World improvements being made in the capital city! The Cinta Costera, the new Metro, the new buses and the plans to amplify Amador are truly marvelous feats. Yet here in Boquete, we are left to live as a 3rd World Country.
The electrical outages we have endured daily since the beginning of the new 4-lane highway should cause shame to Union Fenosa and to our government. Not only do we suffer these outages, but we also suffer extreme surges and brownouts in the current such as to damage our electrical appliances and electronics. Not many people can afford to replace their computer and related equipment, refrigerator, microwaves, light fixtures, telephones, cables, etc.
We try to do our part as conscientious citizens while lowering our demand for power by using fluorescent and LED bulbs, but these surges only cause them to explode. Those that don’t explode burn out prematurely.
Mr. President and executives of Union Fenosa, these problems are causing your people in the Interior much expense which we can ill afford. We are extremely proud of the improvements to our nation’s capital and would value your focus on the Interior as you have focused on the Capital.
We desperately call for your immediate assistance!
The Forgotten People of Boquete
