State Senator Brian P. Stack (D-33) called on PSE&G to increase efforts to immediately restore power to residents getting crushed by an absence of power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The state senator/mayor also wants the power company to reimburse residents for losses when New Jersey makes it to the other side of the mess.

“While I understand that New Jersey endured the ‘Storm of the Century’, PSE&G should have implemented the ‘Preparation of the Century’ in order to address predicted consequences," said Stack. "While this event was catastrophic, PSE&G should have been prepared to react to such disaster, as we had ample warning about the storm. 

“Residents of my district are trapped in high rise buildings," he added. "My constituency needs restoration of power in the immediate future.  While I have been in constant contact with executives at PSE&G to express the need for power, the public needs to know that I continue to press for restoration of power. Upon restoration of power to all New Jersey residents, I look forward to the release of a detailed policy by PSE&G, which will explain how residents will be credited for power loss as a result of Hurricane Sandy. After enduring such a loss of power, residents are entitled to relief in their pockets.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
