“While thousands of Westchester residents slept in homes with no heat, power or hot water and in some cases with live wires down around them- NYSEG officials stopped responding to emails and calls, and became totally unresponsive.  The people of Westchester, who pay NYSEG to provide them with a service, have a right to know what NYSEG is doing to restore their power.  While worker safety is a priority – NYSEG’s response has been deplorable.  There should be constant communication in a storm – and that did not occur.”


About Westchester County

Westchester County, located in the heart of the historic Hudson Valley, covers 500 square miles and has a population of just under a million.  Originally home to Native Americans, who were members of the Lenape tribe, it is today a rich mix of many cultures and landscapes.  The County is a blend of bustling cities, quaint villages and picturesque towns as well as open spaces and a network of beautiful parks. Westchester is made up of 6 cities, 19 towns and 20 villages.  Westchester County is known for top-notch public schools, and a high quality of life.  The County is also an intellectual capital, boasting a highly educated workforce, competitive colleges and universities, Fortune 500 companies, world changing non-profits, and cutting-edge research centers.  Westchester is led by County Executive George Latimer, who took office in January 2018 as the ninth County Executive. Using inclusion and openness as a foreground, Latimer is fighting to make Westchester a destination for all people to live, work and enjoy.
