Portsmouth Economic Development committee runs survey on Town's Irene response
The Portsmouth Economic Development Committee (PEDC) announced a new online survey of residents on the Town's response to Irene. They announced it on Facebook, where they have a presence — unlike the Town, which appears to rely on courier pigeons and precognition to warn people about things like mandatory evacuations. From the Facebook post:
What is your opinion of the town's response to Hurricane Irene? Some have called the town's public information operation totally inadequate. What do you think?
Editorial note: The reference to "some" in their post almost certainly includes me, and I just want to be very clear: the Police, Fire, and DPW were out there doing their job; it was the communication and leadership from elected officials that I felt "lamentably poor."
