Arizona Official Threatens to Cut off Los Angeles Power for Boycotting State

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa received a letter from Gary Pierce, commissioner of the Arizona Corporation Commission, which threatened to cut off the city’s power supply as payback for the city’s boycott of Arizona.

As previously reported in La Plaza, the Los Angeles City Council made the decision last week to boycott Arizona in protest of the immigration law, by suspending official travel there and ending future contracts with state businesses.

Pierce noted in his letter to Villaraigosa that a quarter of Los Angeles’ electricity comes from Arizona and he is willing to payback Los Angeles for damaging Arizona’s economy. He told, “Doggone it—if you’re going to boycott this candy store…then don’t come in for any of it.”
