The July 17 meeting of the Green Party of Nassau County will feature a talk focusing on reducing electric rates on Long Island by making LIPA a fully nonprofit utility. Our speaker, Fred Harrison, will also discuss why a class action climate change lawsuit against the fossil fuel industry (Exxon, et al.) makes good sense (and cents) for LIPA ratepayers.
Fred Harrison is a retired teachers union activist and leader who has been involved in politics since the 1960s. He is currently volunteering with Food and Water Watch as a utility ratepayer advocate, and is an expert on all aspects of the problem. Fred speaks often at LIPA Board meetings in favor of nonprofit public power, and has submitted testimony to the Commission on the Future of LIPA about dramatically reducing electric rates and democratizing governance.
The meeting will begin at 7:30 PM at Freeport Memorial Library, 144 W. Merrick Road, Freeport, NY 11520. We will again attempt a hybrid Zoom meeting for those unable to attend in person. To be sent the Zoom link, please make your request well ahead of the meeting time to [email protected]. !
