As of 4:20PM, Saturday, March 13th, the power went out for all residence of Sycamore Park, located in the South End of New Rochelle, bordering Pelham Manor. On Sunday, March 14th around 11:00AM the problem confirmed by Con Edison Customer Service via a phone that a transformer went out on Kings Hwy. I visually observer two Con Edison vehicles. One even asked me where 75 Kings Hwy was located. So with this information I assumed that the transformer would be changed in a few hours and that the power would be restored. Well, this did not come to be. When returning home, there were no Con Edison vehicles to be found. I thought that power was restored, it was not. I then contacted Con Edison again and asked about the status of my power. They told me that they had no information. I then informed them that I called earlier that morning and that another representative informed me that a transformer was out on Kings Hwy. and that I visually had seen the crew and actually spoke to on e of the workers. Once again, she stated that there was no record of anyone dispatched to that location and that no record confirming that a transformer was out. This is outrageous. The representative then stated that the crew may have been pulled from that site to go to another site, but that there was no record of this. I then proceeded to drive around the South End of New Rochelle. To no surprise, there wasn’t one Con Edison vehicle in site. But when I drove to the North End, every block had a Con Ed crew on it. This was insulting. Even in an emergency power outage, Mayor Bramson was able to somehow pull Con Edison workers from the South End so that the North End residences can receive power. If I haven’t witnessed this first had, I wouldn’t have believed it. I even went the next step. I actually spoke to a Con Edison field worker and they confirmed that they were being told to service this area, meaning the North End, before other areas. Later that evening, I once again contacted Con Edison via phone to find out more. This time I made a stink about this entire situation and how workers were pulled from the South End to service the North End. This goes to show everyone that Bramson and Strome favor the North End of New Rochelle more then the South End. We see it in every way, the schools, the parks, the playgrounds, the road conditions the police coverage, everything. Enough is enough. Bramson and Strome must be kicked out. They continue to divide New Rochelle into two and favor one over the other. New Rochelle is ONE CITY and every area should be maintained and services equally.
Kick out Bramson and Strome!!! Time for Change in New Rochelle!!!!
