I would also like to make it clear that the people of Westchester must be reimbursed for any outages that they have been forced to experience, especially if there was a priority placed on New York City customers over any other consumers.

During times like these, we must work together. The more information that elected officials receive from Con Ed means that elected officials like myself can help Con Ed better manage expectations.
Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this letter.

November 1, 2012 Kevin Burke President and Chief Executive Officer Consolidated Edison Cooper Station P.O.

Box 138 New York, NY 10276-0138 Dear Mr. Burke: I am writing to you in regards to the delay in returning electric service to Westchester County. While I understand that we have all experienced an unprecedented natural disaster that has wreaked havoc on our utilities. I also understand that it will take some time to return to full service. However I have read with great distress that power will not be back for up to 10 days, leaving impacted consumers without power for potentially two weeks since they first lost power. This is unacceptable. As the weather gets colder, people are worried over freezing pipes; those with need for refrigerated medicines are deeply fearful for their health; there are a myriad of needs that become increasingly desperate with each passing day that power remains out. Many residents who have called Con Ed to report an outage have been told that Westchester County will be one of the last areas to have electricity restored, with New York City getting service first. The people of Westchester are in desperate need of some immediate action. I cannot express in words how angry and frustrated those who have contacted me are. My staff and I are traveling the district that I represent and are finding fallen trees on homes, seniors and residents with health issues without power, and even downed live wires that seem to receive no attention. I would like to formally request, in writing, the results of Con Edison’s post storm assessment of the consumer base in Westchester County. In the event that assessment is yet to be completed, I would like to be able to tell my constituents what your progress is toward that end. Residents need to know more than just the date by which all activities are to be completed; they need some step-by-step progress toward these goals if they are to have faith the final goals are to be reached.

I would also like to make it clear that the people of Westchester must be reimbursed for any outages that they have been forced to experience, especially if there was a priority placed on New York City customers over any other consumers. During times like these, we must work together. The more information that elected officials receive from Con Ed means that elected officials like myself can help Con Ed better manage expectations. Thank you in advance for your prompt response to this letter. Sincerely,

George Latimer Assemblyman, 91st District
