Amid by residents and government officials, Northeast Utilities announced on Thursday that Connecticut Light & Power president Jeffrey Butler has resigned, according to the Hartford Courant.

The Berlin, CT-based utility also announced that it is planning to improve its performance so that CL&P is better prepared for severe weather such as and last month's Nor'Easter, which caused widespread power outages across the state.

Butler's resignation comes just as Gov. Dannel Malloy's "Two-Storm Committee" is of the preparedness and responses of CL&P and United Illuminating during the recent storms.

Mr. Butler's resignation is a good first step. It is my understanding that the investigation into the October storm will be led by a former FEMA executive. Does anyone remember FEMA'S many fumbles with Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans?
