Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto was on hand Saturday as LIPA protesters filled Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa.
Their anger at the utility was clear as some residents have been without power since Hurricane Sandy struck Oct. 29.
Venditto's frustration stems from a lack of communication with LIPA. His words were simple and searing.
"LIPA has totally failed us," the supervisor said.
The protest came on the same day that Massapequa Park Mayor James Altadonna reported that full power had finally been restored to the village.
It was little consolation to those still in the dark. There are still 64,000 LIPA customers without power in Nassau, including more than 20,000 in the Town of Oyster Bay.
