Dear Editor:

The residents of Hamilton Beach understand that many in our city were badly affected by Sandy. We also understand that many areas are in worse shape than ours, but is it too much to ask National Grid to come up with a solution to the constant loss of gas service to our homes?

I understand there is water in the gas lines but does it really makes sense to keep sending it back into the main by blowing compressed air into the lines? It would seem to me that they should be removing the water, not sending it to someone else’s home, which it seems like they’re doing.

We know how tirelessly Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder, City Councilman Eric Ulrich and state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. have been working with us on everything since the storm hit but now we would like to ask the three of you, united as one, to put pressure on National Grid to solve the problem before someone decides to not call when they should, and a tragedy happens.
