Let's Spice Up Dullsville: aka CD 11

CD11Missed in the holiday news void was a piece I have been meaning to comment on, but haven't had the opportunity. With the "wanna-be's" dominating the local political scene, let's take a trip back to CD 11, the ugly step-child in March's local election.

It seems that Adelphia Cable agreed to cut cable rates and cut "an infrastructure surcharge by $68 million over 12 years". Patrick McGreevy's pre-Thanksgiving Day article in the LA Times quotes Jack Weiss as saying that "Adelphia customers have put up with poor service and excessive charges for too long."

So here's a few questions: Does this overcharging and poor service scandal bite Rosendahl in the ass since it clearly happened under his tenure? Does his role as Adelphia's executive vice president of government affairs (that is, the corp's lobbyist) resonate with voters in light of all that happened at Adelphia? Is Krisiloff keen enough to take advantage of it? (Probably not since it has been a week and a half since it went to committee)

**Special thanks to my tipster for the heads up**

The problem with all of this is that Adelphia hasn't built out it's system fully and much of what the consumers have need redoing. Since Adelphia will go away soon, how will a good cable company be able to provide better service, if they cannot recoup the costs of infrastructure. Is this a double edged sword ? Are the residents still going to get screwed?

Hey, if think this bites Bill in the 'ass', wait till someone finds out how much his fancy set cost and how much it cost to do his show over the years and how much budget he used on his 'government relations' during the time that the customers were screaming. See if that money could have been better spent for customer service. That 'bites' big time.

anyone who watched Bill Rosendahl's show over the years knows it was well done, fair and balanced, and profiled up-to-date stories viewers were interested in. It was professional, intelligent, and current. Anyone who thinks otherwise has an axe to grind.

I agree. Rosendahl would be a thoughtful, articulate, rational addition to the Council.
