Some Broome County political leaders, who will be attending President Barack Obama’s appearance at Binghamton University, have their hot-button topic ready for the President.

Both supporters of natural gas drilling the in the region, like Broome County Executive Debra Preston, and opponents, like Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan, say they want to press their position on hydraulic fracture drilling to President Obama.

In addition to Preston and Ryan, other elected officials from the region scheduled to attend the presentation are New York State Senator Thomas Libous, Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, Congressman Richard Hanna, Town of Union Supervisor Rose Sotak and Vestal Town Supervisor John Schaffer.

Members of the public were not invited to the appearance at Binghamton University.  Only B.U. students, faculty and staff were eligible to sign up for a lottery-style drawing for tickets.
