Jon Soldo, a Huntington Station resident and Long Island native who is outraged by the poor preparedness and response by the National Grid and Long Island Power Authority
) has started a new petition on SignOn.org which calls on the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo
to hold LIPA accountable and end their contract.
"With temperatures dropping and gasoline lines growing, harm that comes to people and their homes now falls on LIPA's shoulders," said Jon Soldo. "For the highest power rates in the country, this is simply unacceptable."
