It’s not a huge deal, but it’s noteworthy that CL&P President and COO Jeff Butler wasn’t at today’s meeting of the governor’s Two Storm Panel. Butler was the company’s public face after the recent storms. Other officials from the company were there to answer questions from the panel instead.
Joe McGee, the panel’s co-chair, says it was up to the utilities to choose their representatives. And Mitch Gross, CL&P spokesman, says Butler was in Berlin running the company. Gross says his associates were more than capable of addressing the panel.
There you have it.
