Gov. Scott Walker hosted a ceremony today honoring utility workers, many of whom recently took on extra responsibilities or traveled to the East Coast to assist with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
We dedicated more than 100 personnel resources to help restore electric service in New York in the storm's aftermath. Our crews were nicknamed ‘The Machine’ by Consolidated Edison (ConEd) work dispatchers, due to their efficiency and strong work ethic.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie also thanked Wisconsin utility crews via video for assisting in the recovery effort.
Our Customer Operations employees who attended the event, included John Pilling, area manager; Joe Krzyzaniak, operations manager; Scott Johnson, lead line mechanic, and Jerimiah “JJ” Blosmore, line mechanic. Bert Garvin, senior vice president external affairs also attended the event.
