Conn. official raps Bridgeport mayor's post-Isaias alerts

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut emergency-communications official says Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim shouldn't have used an emergency alert system to lambaste a power company over its response to Tropical Storm Isaias, and his messages prompted hundreds of people to refuse future notifications. That's according to the Connecticut Post, which said Sunday that it used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a recent letter from statewide emergency telecommunications director William Youell to Ganim's administration. The newspaper says state officials urged the city to review its emergency notification procedures but didn't impose any penalties. Ganim told The Post that city officials "greatly appreciate" the state officials' input.
