At 7:35pm, in our Town Hall, Our Town Board voted unanimously to ban fracking. This is democracy in action. This is where the people have spoken and the officials have responded. This is where , God willing, we will not see an industrial activity come into our bucolic way of life,and destroy all other ways of living and life , just for profit of a few. Thank you my Town Board. You have changed the course of my town forever. I can go to bed at night and see the stars, listen to the bugs, hear the water in the streams flow, and get up in the morning knowing, I won't see pads of drilling going on, large haulers destroy the roads, water being used laced with toxic chemicals, to pump with extreme pressure, into the ground to crack it, yes I can breathe the air and drink my tap water , knowing that it is safe right now, thanks to my Town Board. Amen.....
