Dear Mr. Lay,

Recently I received notice that Enron will no longer provide electric service for my residence "as a result of continued uncertainty in this market, as well as a lack of clarity on the future of direct access." I find this very disappointing and would like Enron to re-consider this decision.

I am a strong believer in the free market system and, in part, it was for this reason that I chose Enron as my electric service provider several years ago when the market in California was deregulated. I also chose Enron because of my knowledge of your company, its leadership and the strategic direction you have provided.

Never was there a time in the marketing of electric service to the State of California for a company such as Enron to exhibit long range thinking & leadership. This is an opportunity for Enron to show commitment and staying power in a market that has "radically changed" and lacking in clarity.

I recognize it is not an easy decision to change a decision that has already been made. However, I also consider you a risk taking, strong and capable leader who wants to make the right decision for its ultimate customers in spite of short term political decisions (that will get changed) by Governor Davis.
