More than one million Long Islanders were without power after Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc on the eastern seaboard last week. Over 200,000 residents in Nassau and Suffolk counties are still in the dark while temperatures dip below freezing during the nighttime and no certain date on when the power will return has been set.

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 (LIPA) 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."
