JLCNY Endorsements

October 29, 2012

 

Below is a list of endorsements for several important elections in counties where we have landowner coalition members. For each race, the list shows an incumbent, the challenger and their party. This list of endorsements is based on input from our coalition leaders and members, examination of the candidates’ records and positions on issues important to the JLC and an evaluation of who will best represent the interests that are vital to the JLC members and their communities.

 

Each candidate we have endorsed has shown a commitment to landowner rights and is vital in moving our agenda forward (we have not recommended a candidate in every race). Our endorsements signal the JLC’s strong belief that we should support those candidates who stand up for our rights in the face of tremendous pressure and misinformation.

 

This year, local elections at the county, city, town and village levels will be more important than ever. Those opposed to natural gas development are actively trying to place their candidates on local boards. Electing pro gas candidates at the local level will be crucial while we wait for our courts to determine the extent of local and state control over natural gas development.  Please contact your landowner coalition for information on local elections.

 

Voting is a personal decision based on each individual’s experience and interests. This list is meant to inform you of the candidates who support the issues important to the JLC. However you make your decisions on the political candidates, we urge you to exercise your right to vote on November 6, 2012.
