On Monday night the Port Washington community spoke with one loud voice against PSEG bullies. An overflow polite, but angry, crowd clearly told our political leaders that the only way to permanently solve the problem of safe electric service was to underground all the utility lines.
Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington more than a decade ago convinced LIPA to underground these wires on Port Boulevard from Main Street to Campus Drive. It worked. And LIPA paid the entire bill.
We now must convince Governor Cuomo that PSEG must do the same thing. I believe that working with our town and state officials we can convince him to take action.
We may have lost the first battle, but Port community can still win the war against PSEG.
