Statement from State Senator Gaughran on PSEG-LI and LIPA’s Failed Storm Response
Calls for Termination of Heads of PSEG-LI and LIPA
“The events of the past week have made clear: PSEG-LI has failed Long Islanders. Half a million Long Islanders were left in the dark without communication from PSEG, including seniors and medically vulnerable persons. Many still remain without power and without answers. LIPA, the oversight authority to PSEG-LI, has been asleep at the wheel and failed in its oversight of PSEG-LI, leaving Long Islanders to suffer for their inaction.
I am disgusted by PSEG-LI and LIPA’s total failure that endangered our most vulnerable residents. Their failed leadership is unforgivable and Mr. Eichhorn, President of PSEG-LI, and Mr. Falcone, CEO of LIPA, must be terminated immediately.”
