In reality, ProActive Communications is responsible for establishing NY AREA and other Entergy focused group. ProActive acquired a consulting/government affairs contract from Entergy to create a 3rd party advocacy group. ProActive gave "contributions" to several New York based groups who in turn paid member fees to NY AREA (all funds of which came from Entergy). NY AREA chairman, Jerry Kremer, is actually a paid consultant of ProActive Communications who also worked with ProActive Communications on their Phillip Morris account. In consultation with Entergy, ProActive guides NY AREA to support the strategic objectives of Entergy.
