Report: Kaiman on Short Candidate List to Head LIPA

Longtime Great Neck resident named to possibly fill vacant executive post.

North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman is on a short list of candidates for the chief executive position at the Long Island Power Authority, according to a Newsday report.

Kaiman, a longtime resident of Great Neck, has served as supervisor in North Hempstead since January 1, 2004. He is a Democrat.

The appointment of a new LIPA chief, which has yet to be finalized by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's office, could come as early as Oct. 2, according to Newsday.

Kaiman, 50, serves as the chairman of the town’s Solid Waste Management Authority, Commissioner of the Great Neck North Water Authority, a board member of the Long Island Regional Planning Council and as a board member of the Association of a Better Long Island. He is a former trustee of Temple Israel of Great Neck.

After serving since 2007, former LIPA head Kevin Law left in September 2010 to head up the Long Island Association.

LIPA, a non-profit municipal electric utility, provides electric service to more than 1.1 million customers in Suffolk and Nassau counties, and the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens.

This e mail was sent to the governor Dear governor I am writing you to let you know that I strongly oppose appointing Mr. Kaiman for the position at LIPA , I have known you for many many years. I have admired you and voted for you consistently I also know Mr. Kaiman Personally and have dealt With him many many times , under his "supervisor ship" the Town of North Hempstead has been mismanaged , dealing with the building department has become impossible , he ignores wishes of all tax payers in Favor of keeping himself In power . I hope that you will not even consider nominating Mr. Kaiman for the Lipa position ,I am looking forward to voting for you in the future. I trust your judgment and believe you Will nominate a person of Integrity and competence to head LIPA , Thank you Joseph Sent from my iPhone
