Assemblyman Graf continues fight for fair utility rates on Long Island.
“The governor’s energy highway is missing an on-ramp for Long Island,” said Graf. “To cut off the transmission of low-cost energy at New York City is disgraceful, failing to provide relief to the most overburdened ratepayers in the state here on Long Island. Our community has funded the rest of the state’s energy costs for too long, and the piggy bank is officially broken.”
Graf has been an outspoken advocate for lower energy costs on Long Island, which crushes the budgets of families, businesses, school districts and local governments. As a result, property taxes have reached upwards of $1,000 per month for many local home and business owners, making it nearly impossible for Long Island children to build their lives in the community.
“This fight is not over. This issue is too important to let fade, and I am far from finished when it comes to fighting for Long Island ratepayers,” said Graf. “I will continue to rally members of the community to make our voice heard by the governor and legislative leaders, because if we don’t fix this problem soon, our children will be forced to flee Long Island in search of the employment we can’t afford to offer.”
Graf urges Long Islanders to visit www.pluglongislandin.com, write the governor, sign the petition and join the fight.
