Officers and Directors- Mr Kevin Burke CEO

As a former Brooklynite & long time Con Ed stock holder I was surprised to hear that Con Ed is the owner of one of the buildings that is going to be sold to those who wish to build a Mosque. I find it deplorable for many reasons but most of all from the stand point that it is going to be built that close to "Ground Zero" where many good & innocent Americans lost their lives & would be a daily reminder of that tragic day.
Con Ed has always been a good, responsible corporate citizen and I dont belive that the sale of this site would dramatically enhance the bottom line of your financials. I would even go so far as to say cut my dividend and dont sell the site. Secondly with N.Y. scrambling for tax dollars why would you sell the site to an entity that would now remove it from the tax rolls. The political pressure to keep this from surfacing until now must have been tremendous but now that it is out in the open I expect you as a good corporate citizen to stand behind the good citizens of N.Y. and those that lost their lives.
