Dear Friends and Natural Gas Supporters,
In an attempt to show support for natural gas drilling in NY and to show our political leaders that this issue is important to us, we are organizing a rally in Albany on Wednesday January 9th 2013 to coincide with Governor Cuomo’s State of the State message. We know that opponents of drilling will have a presence there and we must also.
Preliminary plans call for buses to be leaving from Corning at 8 am, Deposit/Windsor at 9 am, Owego at 9:00am, and Binghamton at 9:30. We plan to arrive in Albany at noon. Currently, we plan to leave Albany at 3 pm to return home.
Please be advised that there will be quite a bit of standing, little opportunity for comfort after we get to Albany, and quite a bit of walking.
As this moves ahead, we’ll provide additional details. However, it is imperative that we know who will be joining us so we can finalize our plans. Please contact your coalition contact as soon as possible to tell them you’ll be going. Please be prepared to share your name, phone number, and email address (if you have one) so that your contact can properly record your reservation.
