How Would You Rate Your Elected Officials' Performance During Hurricane Sandy?

Comment on how you feel they participated in the recovery process following the storm.

LIPA has been widely criticized over the past two weeks, with locals and politicians skewering the utility company over its performance and communication at the same time praise poured in for the actual crews who worked for so long to restore power.

While the power was out and damage was being cleaned up in Westhampton and Hampton Bays, for some people their only links to the recovery efforts were the local elected officials. Some of those public officials, including Congressman Tim Bishop and Senator Kenneth LaValle were even re-elected right in the middle of the recovery effort.

Thus, we ask: How would you grade the performance of your local elected officials during the storm recovery efforts? What else would you ask them to do for their constituents?

I live in Hampton Bays. I didnt see or hear anything from anyone since the storm hit. Lipa finally showed up last night at 10pm.Nov 14th. They worked for 3 hours on the electric lines that were down in my yard. Dont know how they did anything out there in the dark and cold but my hats off to them working round the clock 16 days in a row.
