Superstorm Sandy and its aftermath tore through the Northeast region back in October. Months later, the storm may still be tearing something apart.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Moreland Commission recommended Monday to shutter LIPA and replace it [CBS New York] with a private company after its performance, or lack thereof, after Sandy.
Locals in Westhampton and Hampton Bays area responded to the recommendation on Patch Facebook pages and many had questions about scrapping the power company. Here are a few of the comments readers posted Monday:
Joan Brickfield Pratz wrote, "So what will take its place? We know what we have.....will we be guaranteed better with lower prices???"
Susan Haney added, "lol, just who will be better?? More Government???? Has got to be something better...maybe some wind mills!"
Lois Kaz said, "Sometimes the enemy you know is better than the enemy you don't know."
And Pat Kelling Griffith offered, "Just like Lilco was bad so we got LIPA??"
