Broome, Tioga Residents Receive Anti-Fracking Mailer

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

People who live in Broome, Tioga and three other counties being considered for high-volume hydraulic fracturing have received a brochure from a group fighting fracking in New York.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Jill Wiener of Catskill Citizens for Safe Energy said more than 190,000 brochures were sent to residents of the region.

The mailing implored people opposed to fracking to call or write to Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Wiener said in addition to Broome and Tioga, the mailing was sent to residents of Chemung, Chenango and Steuben counties.

The five counties reportedly are the ones where fracking might initially occur if the state allows it.

Wiener said the Catskill Citizens group has received some feedback from those who’ve received the brochures in recent days. She said some people have expressed support for the position outlined in the mailing, while others have indicated their displeasure with the organization’s stance.

Governor Cuomo and the Department of Environmental Conservation have not indicated when a decision regarding fracking will be announced.

Some observers have predicted a decision might be unveiled during February but state officials won’t confirm that possibility.
