Mineola, NY - Long Island Power Authority chairman Howard Steinberg has resigned from the board of directors.


His exit Friday is the latest in a string of departures following criticism of LIPA’s (LY’-puhz) performance in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Newsday (http://bit.ly/VjVcFN ) reports that Steinberg resigned in a letter to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He said his work as a private-sector attorney precludes him from devoting the time to address challenges facing LIPA.

Steinberg’s resignation follows those of LIPA chief operating officer Michael Hervey, trustee X. Christofer Damianos and vice president of customer service Bruce Germano.

Steinberg was appointed by Gov. George Pataki in 1999.

The utility is being investigated for its performance after Sandy. More than a million customers lost power, and some remained in the dark for more than two weeks.

There are still people without power. Clear instructions were absent. In the Internet age that is outrageous. Customers should get a rebate for each day of outages with the rate doubling daily! They only understand money.

Let me understand this. This man was chairman and on the board and was a full time lawyer?
How much did he get paid?
Why do we put up with this??

Longwave, members of boards of corporations usually devote very little time to the corporation. Boards don't run companies. They hire managers to do that.
