Chip Beeker is a longtime catfish and cattle farmer who is committed to protecting Alabama’s seniors from rising costs of utilities associated with Obama’s War on Coal and the EPA’s regulatory overreach.

“Alabama seniors need a conservative representing them on the Public Service Commission, and the most principled choice in this race is Chip Beeker,” said Jim Martin, Founder and Chairman of the non-partisan 60 Plus Association.

Regarding the threats facing seniors today, Martin said, “Obama, West Coast environmentalists and the AARP have brought their liberal agenda to Alabama and are banking on using the Public Service Commission to wage their war on jobs and low energy prices; Electing Chip Beeker is the only way to send a clear message that we aren’t interested in their efforts to drive up the cost of energy and kill Alabama’s jobs.”

“On behalf of the more than 90,000 plus senior supporters 60 Plus represents in the great state of Alabama, I’m proud to offer our endorsement to Chip Beeker.”

Founded in 1992, the 60 Plus Association is a non-partisan seniors advocacy group with a free enterprise, less government, less taxes approach to seniors issues.
