Political Cartoon Tells it All

Dear Coalition Friend:

In this current Pennysaver is a political cartoon put together by Wayne and Kathy Colley of Afton. The cartoon sums up the feeling that many "Upstaters" have regarding the governor's handling of the drilling debate. For those of you outside of this pennysaver circulation, you can see the cartoon below.

Dear CNY Friends:

August/September CNY Landowner Coalition Update

Dear Coalition Friend:

All indications from the media and Albany at this time points to a near Labor Day disclosure of the state’s regulations and decisions on natural gas exploration.  

As we get closer to that date we begin to see some new faces . . .

July 3rd - Urgent Coalition Message - Immediate Action Required

We need you to act on behalf of your property and our coalition immediately.  At least 1,000 responses are needed from our coalition to Senator Libous and Governor Cuomo by Friday, July 6th.  We ask that you and your family members individually make this a matter you quickly care for.  Please do this immediately so you don't forget during this busy week!

A Limited Development Plan Will Exclude Our Coalition:

Recently, the New York Times printed an article touted as a leak from the governor's office.  The article mentioned that our state leadership was considering a plan to allow gas development in a very select region of NY state.  One county (Chenango) of our coalition was listed as a possible starting place for development.  We have since learned even that may not be the case and that the CNY Landowner's Coalition, along with most NY coalitions, will not be in NY's plan for initial development.
