Where’s the mayor going with this?
From today’s press conference on blackouts and Con Ed:
Maybe we don’t know enough about the substance of what went wrong to know the extent to which Con Ed ought ot be faulted for the blackout and the pace of recovery over the last few days.
But it seems well-established, at the least, that Con Ed’s initial, ludicrously low estimates of the number of affected customers resulted in a slow and inadequate response to what has turned out to be a really serious problem.
So what are we missing here?
