AEP Executive Brian X. Tierney Responds to the Concerned Citizens of Coleman, Texas
To the concerned citizens of Coleman and to our honorable Mayor... I, Michael Lagow, for the Concerned Citizens of Coleman, did receive a call finally from Brian X. Tierney, Executive Vice President and CFO of AEP. His assistant told me on two occasions this morning on two separate phones calls to contact him that he was on travel. When I mentioned to her that things were escalating on the city of Coleman matter, and I suggested that I receive a return call quickly as we were launching a social media campaign on AEP, all the sudden, I received a return call from Mr. Tierney. I had been calling for days with no results. Mr. Tierney apologized for his delay in returning my calls as he had been on travel and in meetings. Once we got down to business of the contract, he was not able to deliver much information due to the non-disclosure agreement in place. He did request that I inquire with the City Manager of Coleman and the State of Texas Attorney General's office. I expressed to him that other concerned citizens of Coleman had requested this information before and were turned down. Then I read Nancy Emmert's post!!! What does the City Manager, Mr. Catoe, and Mr. Tierney know, that we as concerned citizens DO NOT know? Mr. Tierney has agreed to discuss with our new Mayor, Kay Joffrion, which also posted above. I am Michael Lagow, DEUXIGN PR GROUP, Dallas, Texas, and we will host a call with the Mayor of Coleman and concerned citizens to Mr. Tierney to get to the bottom of the issues regarding the 2012 contract that no one seems to be able to obtain a copy of. More to follow.....
