AQUINO RECOGNIZES COM ED LINEMEN WHO HELPED RESTORE POWER IN PUERTO RICO
SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Omar Aquino (D-Chicago) welcomed 72 Com Ed personnel to the Capitol today to recognize them for their month-long mission to help restore power in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.
“As someone with family members on the island who were impacted by Hurricane Maria, this is a very personal issue for me,” Aquino said. “These 72 Com Ed linemen went above and beyond their mission to install power by pulling their own money together to assist struggling families and working extra hours to rebuild playgrounds and sports facilities. Through their efforts, they were able to restore power and peace of mind for over 11,000 Puerto Rican residents.”
A formal celebration will be held in June at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture
