A Herald Q&A
Lynbrook business owner joins LIPA Board
Jeff Greenfield looks ahead; communication and response on his agenda
Jeff Greenfield, a lifelong resident of Rockville Centre and business owner in Lynbrook for about 40 years, is a man of many titles. He has held positions with numerous Long Island organizations, including the Rockville Centre Board of Zoning Appeals, the Nassau County Planning Commission (of which he has been chairman for the last six years) and the Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce. In December, Sen. Dean Skelos appointed Greenfield to the Long Island Power Authority Board. LIPA took much scrutiny for the way the it responded to customers in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, but Greenfield thinks he can help make improvements.
He recently sat down with the Herald to discuss his new position and what he hopes to accomplish.
The day after the Moreland Commission I called Sen. Skelos and asked him if his offer to be appointed was on the table because now I was interested. I wanted to help, I wanted to make a difference and I also knew the new [LIPA] Chairman [Lawrence Waldman].
