Kessel's fate as chairman is up to Spitzer

Newsday Rick Brand

"When Governor-elect Eliot Spitzer appeared at a $1,000-a-head fundraiser at the Glen Oaks Country Club last month, he not only thanked his fundraisers who brought in $300,000, but, according to a witness, also singled out an official he jokingly praised "for keeping the lights on" across Long Island.That official, Richard Kessel, 56, whose tenure has survived both Democratic and Republican governors, faces another judgment day as the chairman of the Long Island Power Authority because he serves at the pleasure of the governor."

Richie is a very likeable guy who has done a decent job as chairman of Lipa...but it is Spitzer's ball and bat now....my sense is..some changes will have to be made at Lipa...communication issues have recently popped up and need to be addressed.......for some background Got the wires crossed and our original post Little light is shed on Kessel shift andy
