The Mayor of Chatham Borough and fellow councilmen should be ashamed at their lack of reactiveness in coordinating the restoration of power in the Borough. A complete and utter cluster *@!K...great leadership by all.

Thank god my friend was wrong. I guess they don't even give reliable information to their employees. File your complaints with the bpu. Jcp&l has to pay for this. Thank goodness river road condos restored hour ago. Yay
