Con Edison Protest

Protest at Con Edison Building On Grand Concourse for Pure Power

By Robert Press

Saturday across from where the Bronx Board of Elections started to do the Rank Choice Voting close to one-hundred people came to protest the monopoly on electricity that Con Edison still has as the only distributor of gas and electricity. You may be buying the gas or electricity from another company, but it is Con Edison who brings it to your house through their gas and electric line. Con Ed has also not looked at non-fossil fueled power plants.
The organizers seemed to be former congressional candidate Samelys Lopez and 14th City Council candidate Adolfo Abreau. The attention seemed to be focused on Ms. Lopez who was on the bullhorn, and interviewed later. I could not ask Ms. Lopez if she was planning another run for Congress. against Congressman Ritchie Torres, or if she was looking at the 78th Assembly District where she was Vice-Chair of Community Board 7.
