Perhaps this is how Christie views things when the Executive Chairman of Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) Leslie Miller and his family-owned business were revealed to have not paid BEC bills to the tune of nearly $250,000, and Miller has clearly lost the moral high ground or authority to run the corporation where delinquencies are at the highest they have ever been.

Although Prime Minister Perry Christie and Deputy Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis have seemingly turned a blind eye to Leslie Miller's family-owned business paying $100,000 in cash on an outstanding Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) bill revealed exclusively by The Nassau Guardian on June 17, we can now reveal that the management of BEC has contacted the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) on this important matter.
...
What we do know is that Miller, BEC's executive chairman, informed us that the payment was made via cashier's check.
...
That came after The Nassau Guardian reported that Miller and one of his family-owned businesses collectively owed the corporation nearly a quarter of a million dollars.
...
How can the prime minister keep Leslie Miller on as chairman when Miller has shown a total disregard for the corporation's policy regarding bill payment?
If the answer is that Miller was unaware of that policy, this is also justification for Christie to fire him as executive chairman.
...
Matters like the one involving Leslie Miller and BEC are chipping away at this administration's credibility.
...
Christie's failure to deal with Leslie Miller feeds the perception that he is a weak leader.
He should be reminded that one of the key findings of researchers hired by the PLP leadership after the 2007 election defeat was that the "weak leader" image played a key role in the party's loss.
...
It is certainly his prerogative to keep Leslie Miller as executive chairman of BEC.
But why he does it in the face of all that has been revealed is baffling.
...
The fact that $100,000 was paid on the more than $200,000 bill is important for BEC, which, according to Miller, has $130 million in accounts receivable. But more importantly than that is "how" this bill was paid.
While we feel he did not go far enough in recent statements he made in Parliament on this matter, Opposition Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis was on to something when he raised it.
...
What stands out is that Miller, in his response in Parliament, avoided responding to questions on "how" the bill was paid.
Instead, he appealed to the public's sensibilities, saying that like other businesses, his family's operations fell on tough times.
Miller did not tell Parliament whether the $100,000 was cash collected by Mario's in legitimate business dealings, or whether it came from another source.
Minnis did not press the issue, which he raised four minutes before the end of his contribution.
We submit that he ought to have called for Miller's resignation.
...
The reason we have chosen to again raise the issue of Miller and the $100,000 is that we believe sincerely that our regulatory arrangements have to mean something.

A Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) ...

A Bahamas Electricity Corporation (BEC) task force is preparing to move into shantytowns and other areas across New Providence in a bid to crack down on people who are stealing electricity, BEC Executive Chairman Leslie Miller revealed yesterday.
Miller said the already cash strapped organization?is likely losing hundreds of thousands of dollars as a result of the increasing problem of electricity theft.
...
Asked to estimate how many households steal electricity, Miller said "plenty".
While the problem is "rampant" in shantytowns and some of the poorer communities, Miller said Bahamians would be "surprised" to see who else is stealing electricity.
"It's not just the poor among us, it is anyone who can get away with it," he said.
However, as it relates to the shantytowns, Miller explained how the process works.
"One person would have a meter from BEC and this one person would be paying their bill," he said. "Then we find out that they would make some changes to the BEC box and hook up all their neighbors and friends and bypass BEC's meter."
Miller warned that where this type of illegal activity takes place, "BEC will not take pity on anyone."
"We need the customers to pay us to enable us to keep this country lit,"?Miller said.
Miller added that BEC officials?recently shut down the supply of a man who was supplying electricity to six people in his middle class neighborhood.
He noted that the problem has been commonplace over the years but has grown substantially recently.
Those caught carrying out the illegal exercise can face hefty fines and even jail time, Miller said.
Additionally, they will be required to pay back the corporation and risk having their BEC service permanently disconnected.
Miller is proposing that those found stealing electricity be made to pay triple what their electricity bill should have been over the time that they were carrying out the illegal act.
He said BEC has a process in which it can gauge how much electricity was used.
