Govenors Cronies Limit Committee Participation

All legislative and congressional committees are staffed with members on all side of the aisle. Yet the LIPA committee just formed by Chairman Larry Waldman to review consultants only consists of 3 Governor appointees to LIPA’s Board of Trustees. Is this an attempt to manipulate what happens and minimize the influence of other board members? If so it is unfair and could produce consequences that seriously harm ratepayers. A more diverse group of board members should be included on the committee reflecting the balance of the complete board. If it is good enough for congress and state and local government bodies, it should be good enough for LIPA. Following such a practice may have avoided many of the problems LIPA finds itself in today.

    the governor is not the only one to point the finger of blame at. All of our elected “representatives” should also be part of the blame game. We all need to get a little smarter when it comes to electing these morons…
