Got my second "are your lights on yet" call from Coned tonight. That was after a rather odd call last evening from Coned asking me if there was a Coca-Cola bottling plant at my address in Rye. Given the residential nature of my neighborhood, it seemed obvious to me that the personal calling was on a Ridgewood Drive by Locust Avenue in a Rye in some other part of Westchester county. These folks are working long hours, but I'm less than impressed with their understanding of what they're doing / what's going on.

Doug French has no influence whatsoever with Con Ed. People should understand this by now.... he is pathetic.
Sick of Excuses November 06, 2012 at 05:11 PM
Grace Church and Peck Ave are always the last areas to get lights. Same scenario last year for hurricane Irene. I am sick of hearing excuses from city officials. Do your jobs and get some action for the people who pay their taxes to this city. It is also unbelievable that Osborn and Milton schools still cannot get back to school as of today. This is outrageous!!

Not only is there no power and no con ed in milton and osborn schools, but the mayor and other elected officials are silent on accountability to the citizens and children of those schools. Rye Patch has given more information on the power situation at those schools than any official in rye city. Great public service to our children and tax payers.
