We Need Public Water - Not Another Corporate Monopoly!
STOP THE SALE - WE WANT PUBLIC WATER!
Liberty Utilities wants to buy New York American Water for $608 million.
NYAW purchased Aqua Water in 2012 for $ 71 million which included about 45,000 of the 120,000 NYAW ratepayers. NYAW gouged its ratepayers for hundreds of millions of dollars in profit pursuant to New York State approved rate hikes and surcharges, despite NYAW's persistently under-serving its ratepayers. Meanwhile, the vast majority of Nassau residents receive inexpensive, high-quality public water. Enough is enough!
Our elected officials must end this unfair and inequitable water service dichotomy. All residents are entitled to equal, tax-free public water service.
Tell our state and local representatives to stand up for their constituents, investigate this enormous price tag and use NYAW's petition to sell for an unprecedented profit as an opportunity for the public takeover that we desperately need and deserve.
SIGN A PETITION TO TELL GOVERNOR CUOMO AND OUR STATE AND LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES TO “GIVE US PUBLIC WATER AND NOT ANOTHER PRIVATE WATER MONOPOLY."
