Sea Cliff Mayor Kennedy Calls For ‘A Clean Sweep’ At LIPA

You can include Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy with the many elected officials and Long Island residents who are upset with the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA). The mayor spoke with the Glen Cove Record Pilot and expressed anger at the way LIPA responded to the power outages caused by Hurricane Sandy.

“I would describe LIPA’s response as an epic failure,” said Kennedy.

The mayor said that he was frustrated by LIPA’s lack of communication with him about when power would be restored. According to Kennedy, he participated in twice daily conference calls, but information about when power would be restored was not conveyed during these conversations.

Kennedy said that residents would have accepted a long delay if LIPA had conveyed that to ratepayers, so that long-term arrangements could have been made, but that information was not given by LIPA.

Kennedy also said that he had repeatedly requested a crew from LIPA to repair the damage in Sea Cliff. He added that the village’s department of public works did the entire cleanup.

Many elected officials, including County Executive Ed Mangano and U.S. Congressman Steve Israel have harshly criticized LIPA’s handling of the recovery from power outages, which resulted from Hurricane Sandy. Governor Cuomo has labeled it a  “failure.” Kennedy hopes that action will follow.

“I think it’s about time for Governor Cuomo to do a clean sweep,” the mayor said.
