He's been all over the village, coordinating on this. What do you want him to do? Come to your house and hook up your electric and pump gas into your car?

Thank you lifer! I just jumped on here and cannot believe how insane some of the people posting here are!!! Like a bunch of crying spoiled babies!!! It was a massive storm, many houses, power lines were damaged. Did you really think it would be fixed in one day?! With the severity of the storm I'm impressed that it was repaired in one week! Get over it you wimps! Take a trip to island park, Oceanside, and long beach to see something to cry about! Amazing!

Oh my! How can I ever survive a power outtage without my mayor holding my hand whispering encouraging words into my ear? Bunch of liberal cry baby buffoons! Dry your eyes princess and go volunteer to help out those who are actually in need! (Ie. not some whiny rvc'er who's house didn't wash away!)

I flew in to help my family and I have to say RVC, compared to other villages, did a bang-up job getting things back to normal. I have friends in Manhasset and Garden City still without power, while RVCers do. If you got time, money, and excess gear, I would highly encourage others to volunteer at Long Beach. Those people there need help big time.

Am i missing somwrhing here? People in RVC are annoyed because THEY HAVE THEIR OWN ELECTRIC COMPANY. Why was Freeport able to get their residents except for those by thw water power back on TUESDAY? This is why the RESIDENTS of RVC are annoyed. If we had LIPA and not paying the high taxes of RVC I am sure people woud not be complaining. One week to get elwctric to a village not effected by water is not acceptable.
