It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there.

Dear Friend:

Thank you for contacting me to share your experience with your utility provider following Superstorm Sandy.  I appreciate hearing your views on this important matter.

Please know that I heard your concerns and have directed the Board of Public Utilities to conduct meetings throughout the state for residents to speak directly with their providers on this important issue.  The first of these meetings will be held on Monday, December 10, at 4:00 p.m. in the William Annin School in Basking Ridge. 

I encourage you to include family, friends and neighbors affected by the storm in this open public forum.

I look forward to your valued opinions as we work together to tackle the challenges that New Jersey faces.
