(WTNH) -- Tonight, folks are sounding off on how utility crews are being treated on the job and they're still talking about comments Bridgeport's mayor made about UI. Here's tonight's Voice of the People.
Anonymous from Litchfield said, "On the line workers that came in to the State of Connecticut to help with turning the lights back on, for these people who are going out and yelling at them and throwing eggs at them and everything, maybe they ought to stop and think before they do things like that because maybe the next big storm that we have and we need help, maybe these men will say no to Connecticut and then we'll really be in trouble."
Anna from Oxford said, "I just want to thank you, all the Northeast Utilities and UI out there working to get the power back. They're working very hard, but especially the ones that came from out of state. I met some people that came from Indiana, had to leave their family behind, be out here to help us to get the power back."
Tara from Bridgeport said, "We are in a serious disaster because we have children, many children from all areas of Bridgeport, Inner City children that do not have access to food that are in low income areas. Everyone is suffering, but I do believe the inner City of Bridgeport is suffering a little bit more. It's all about economics and the income level that we see that's approaching there. We all pay the same amount but we do not get treated the same way. So I do not think Mayor Finch is wrong. I do believe Mayor Finch is absolutely correct by speaking up for his city."
Kevin from Hamden said, "I think that the utility people are really trying as hard as they can, what I think politicians want to do is get votes. So that's what I think the Mayor Finch is doing in Bridgeport. I don't think he has any comprehension as to the amount of work these people have to put in."
