- New Nor'easter Possible Next Week: Here Are Two Scenarios
With nearly 20,000 Westchester County households still without electricity on Friday , County Executive George Latimer renewed his call for the presidents of Con Edison and NYSEG to resign and said robocalls sent to customers were "erroneous."
What do you think of County Executive George Latimer's calls for Con Ed, NYSEG execs to resign?
Don't care - I just want power back!
Sort of agree
Sort of disagree
At a news conference at the County Center in White Plains, Latimer, who was flanked by more than 30 state and local elected officials, said when he worked for corporations, he would have been fired for failing to deliver.
Latimer said the utility companies' boards and shareholders should demand accountability and secure a "clean sweep" of management following their lack of response to back-to-back Nor'easters in the past week.
"They didn't change their strategies," Latimer said. "Their 'robocalls' were erroneous."
Noam Bramson, mayor of New Rochelle, and Linda Puglisi, supervisor of the Town of Cortlandt, detailed their frustrations with the lack of utility company help as did residents of North White Plains, Mount Vernon and Mount Pleasant.
"These are extraordinarily difficult hardships,'' Bramson said.
"It's a nightmare,'' Puglisi said. "We are not being heard."
Residents said "robocalls" from utility companies regularly reported their power would be restored by 11 p.m. that day, or that it had been restored.
In every case, the residents said they returned home to dark, cold homes and no electricity restored.
