Monday Morning EPA Meeting Gathering


Gathering this Monday at The Forum in Binghamton, NY

236 Washington Street  Binghamton, NY 13901



Dear Coalition Friend:

Before we mention the rally to be held on Monday, I want to ask our coalition to remember 9.11.01. Today's 9th anniversary of this landmark event reminds us all of the great value of our nation, our military and our freedoms.  Take a moment today to remember how blessed we are to live in our great nation.

Next, we want everyone able to attend the EPA hearing gathering this Monday at the Broome County Forum. Everyone is encouraged to show up on Monday at 10:00 AM and to stay until the first session ends at 4:00 PM. This is when the media will most focused on the event (before the evening news deadlines!) and when it will be most important to show a strong outpouring of support for developing Natural Gas. Even if you have a speaking slot at another time or do not wish to enter the Forum at all, please be there Monday morning to help show our majority, solidarity, and strength. Please bring a sign to convey your message as well.     

Park in the Boscov's Parking Ramp on the west side of Water St. halfway between Court St. and Henry St. From there it is a short walk to the Regency Hotel, one block north from the ramp on Water St.  There will be a hospitality room in the Regency for pro-gas supporters with free drinks and refreshments from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Monday and Wednesday!  Free "Friends of Natural Gas" hats and pins will be given out at the hospitality room. From the Regency it is a short walk one block east through the parking lot across the street from the Regency parking lot to the front doors of the Forum. Taking this route will avoid the anti-gas demonstrations that the city permitted in the area south of the Forum. 

As you walk from the Regency to the Forum look for the table set up by our Union friends and co-supporters on a grassy lot. They too will be giving out free "Friends of Natural Gas" hats and pins! Their voices of support will help us show that support for gas is indeed strong and dominant!

This is the single most important event we face right now.  This hearing is in the center of all of our coalitions areas and the north eastern gas producing areas. There is no excuse for not showing the most massive display of support for gas so far. Please do your part and be there. While we are all very busy living our lives, others are busy trying to take this opportunity away from us. They will trying to use these hearings to do that! Please do not let them do that! Please take this opportunity to help secure this opportunity for you, your family, and your future!  Also, please remember to always be civil and courteous to the anti-gas people no matter what. We cannot allow ourselves to be seen as aggressive! Do not engage them in a verbal argument or any physical manner. Doing that will only lower us to their level and let's not go there!

In addition to these all important hearings, there will be a reception Tuesday September 14th in the Holiday Inn in Binghamton. The reception will coincide with a television broadcast of GAS ODYSSEY on WBNG TV!  At the reception Gas Odyssey will be playing as it airs and will be followed by a televised panel discussion on developing NY's Natural Gas. This will be a fun and informative event and all are encouraged to attend. Doors will open before 7:00.

Thank you one and all for your support and enthusiasm. Working together at events like this will help us win this fight!


On Behalf of the Steering Committee, Brian Conover
