New Jersey Town Changes Name For a Day in Honor of OG&E
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A New Jersey town is honoring Oklahoma Gas & Electric Co. by renaming itself for a day.
Glen Rock, N.J., on Monday took on the name of Oklahoma G&E to honor the utility for the help it rendered after Superstorm Sandy.
Crews from the Oklahoma City-based company spent six days last month repairing electric lines in New Jersey. Glen Rock Mayor John van Keuren says he was impressed that the workers drove all the way from Oklahoma to restore power to the community of 12,000 residents.
OG&E spokeswoman Kathleen O'Shea says the town had been dark for a week before company crews arrived.
Van Keuren issued a proclamation of thanks in which he thanked the Oklahoma utility workers.
