VICTORY: LIPA Held Accountable for Poor Response to Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy

John Soldo started a MoveOn Petition to the New York State Assembly, asking them to hold LIPA accountable for their poor response in handling Hurricane Sandy. The petition gathered more than 10,000 signatures, and after widespread citizen complaints, Governor Andrew Cuomo formed a 10-member investigative panel that will review the utilities’ preparation and recommend ways to overhaul New York’s power delivery system. It will also examine the roles played by the state-run agencies, including the New York Power Authority, LIPA and the Public Service Commission.
