Senator Jim Brochin is hosting a Town Hall Meeting in regards to BGE and specifically its’ handling of the Hurricane Irene situation on Monday, November 28, 2011 from 7-9pm at Towson High School.

As many of you know, my family was without power for an entire week. Each day, I would head into my office, and more & more people would have power back…but not us.

Much of Towson was left without power after the storm — many for a week or more.

Schools had delayed openings because of the lack of power — most of them through the first week due to lack of power!

Though BGE had a lot on their hands, many question if things could have been handled better, and power restored to many earlier than it was. Why were they not as prepared as they should have been? What can be done to prevent this type of long term outage in the future?

Senator Jim Brochin is the Maryland State Senator for Legislative District 42, which encompasses much of Towson. He lives in Towson and was affected by the outage. Here is a link to the flyer he sent to his constituents, inviting them to the Towson BGE town hall meeting.

If you are interested in hearing from BGE and sharing your thoughts, make sure to attend on Monday.

Towson High School is located at 69 Cedar Ave, Towson, MD 21286.
