Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: JCP&L

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Dear Mayor Coles,

I live in a senior development in Lakewood and we have a serious problem with non functioning street lights. Several of our lights have not been functioning (some for months or longer) and despite repeated complaints to JCP&L nothing is done to address this problem. The lights remain out and we get no feedback from JCP&L whatsoever. Some of our streets are very dark and pose a serious safety concern for our residents, even more so because we are senior citizens.

Earlier today I saw on The Lakewood Scoop that you had a meeting with representatives from JCP&L regarding this very issue elsewhere in Lakewood and I’m hoping you can bring our problem to their attention as well.

Thank you for all you do for the residents of Lakewood.

Response from Mayor Coles:

Hi Judah

I will have someone in my office reach out to you to get some additional information and see what we can do to help.

thanks for writing
