Doesn't all this job moving within the sector give you an impression that something is not right? Moving from LIPA to NYPA is one thing but from LIPA to the PSC? Isnt this the same PSC that refuse to look at LIPA rate hikes and open their books?
Yeah right

Yes, all your comments are correct. Go to LIPALIES.com & the truth is revealed about all of the LIPA salaries. All of the Politically connected 'Team Players' that are far from bi-partisan stick around. They just move from one corrupt high paying position to another politically connected one elsewhere. Mr. Kessel is the perfect example of this being now head of New York Power Authority (NYPA), and our own new NYS U.S. Senator Gillibrand; Sr. D'Amato's girl from past, his Son is the thorn in the auto industries side regarding emissions and other various finance committees, while they are part of one large lobbying firm that supports deregulation for power industries; hypocritical when one opacity is equivalent to 100,000 car emissions, only the power station stack emissions are more neuro-toxic. Not to mention their ties with Waste Management. This gave these crooks room to racketeer which is why LILCO went down (review the original case). LIPA picked just kept it going, & deferred costs including power plant property taxes through LILCO d.b.a. LIPA under various names on the bill & changing the tariffs without proper public notice, while dodging liability bullets Brooklyn Union an affiliate of ENRON with the integrated gas system just like LILCO, and then MarketSpan/KeySpan Corp. sheilded them from under specific contractual agreements that LIPA refuses to make public, as well as KeySpan/National Grid under seperate name games. For instance, the Power Stations are Operating under the name GENCO. Upon further information Lynda Nicolino (formerly Carusso) She was former Assistant Attorney General to Vacco & Spitzer, and Kevin Law a former Duke Energy lawyer where Duke Energy was taken to court regarding giving out corporate concessions to hush up about future rate hikes the rest of the rate payers had to pick up the tab for, like everyone who has LIPA & KeySpan/National Grid (NatGreed). Others in LIPA are former LILCO/KeySpan employees in the lower ranking salary positions. There are no coincidences, but we need to come together to deal with the now to correct the LIPA situation & get a publicly voted in Board, NOT APPOINTED where the NYS PSC can't regulate, & where LIPA under the illegal unconstitutional LIPA Act seems to override PSC decisions for private utilities with ties or contracted to LIPA - LILCO d.b.a. LIPA. Spitzer's right hand chosen man Governor Paterson is just as knowledgable regarding all of this, too. You want result, call Washington, the Department of Energy and the Federal Trade Commission. Those of you sitting on the evidence, copy it without your fingerprints and send it in if you fear for your job or life. It's not worth sitting on criminal evidence that has destroyed an entire world economy, you are no more safer than the rest of everyone else who is suffering. You know who you are, and so do we. One way or another, you names will be given out!!

The ball is already rolling! Credible voices are being heard loudly, & spread quickly. Help support the LIPA LIES Initiative. LIPA has a right to purchase the power plants that may be put on hold. If LIPA goes, then NatGreed has the right to shut down Power Plants they don't want, which means more job loss, yet they cry not enough power! LIARS! KeySpan Corp. has been Sand Bagging for years w/LIPA/Kessel's knowledge, or what's known in the industry as 'Cooking the #'s"'. FERC doesn't even really know what power plant is a Base Load Unit or Peak Load Unit. Now LaRocca is deep into the NYS Public Service Commission. Can you say 'Conflict of Interest?' FERC is a problem when it's who you know, rather than what you really know when crime goes under the radar. Hence National 'GRID' tells what they really want. Rumor has it that upstate Northern NY, NYMO d.b.a. NatGrid may file for a bailout due to the hidden liabilities they merged into down state, try swallowing that one! LILCO may just come back into play, since it still exists as under LILCO Doing Business As (d.b.a.) LIPA. Together, let all of us together flush the old time criminal turds down & out!! Our livlihoods depend on it.
