It makes absolutely no sense that Con Edison CEO Kevin Burke is going to receive an additional 24 percent increase in his salary. This man showed no understanding for the suffering and economic losses the residents of northwest Queens endured for 10 hot days in July 2006.
That offer to pay residents who lost their power $100 in compensation is a bunch of ballyhoo! If anything, Burke should take a 24 percent cut in his salary as should all of his board's vice presidents. Con Ed is a poor excuse for a major power company. It does not have the interests of the public at heart only the interest to line its pockets with our hard earned money.
