Suffolk Exec is Trying to Set Up A Sound-Region Energy Summit for July 24

The idea of holding a closed-door meeting among public officials in the Long Island Sound area to talk about regional energy needs is a good one, and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, who is planning just such a summit for July 24, is off to a good start, with Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal having accepted Levy's invitation.

This press release summarizes who else is invited -- New York's governor and attorney general, for example -- but other than Blumenthal, the list seems light on Connecticut officials. They need to be there too, or else all the good interstate feelings that came out of the anti-Broadwater effort might dissipate.

Tom,

Any chance you have the time and inkling to wrangle an invite? You certainly qualify as an environmental advocate.

No chance. Not only do I not know what I'm talking about but I'd come out of the meeting and put everything on my blog, which is exactly what they don't want. Plus, Suffolk County is so far away!

The "private" thing is a little curious. What are they going to accomplish in private that they couldn't do in public? Your blog would have been some needed sunshine, but I understand your reasons.
