Anit-Frackers Respond to Cuomo's Comments

With Governor Cuomo making positive comments about the economic benefits of fracking in advance of President Obama's visit to Binghamton Friday, reaction continues to come in.
 
Obama supports natural gas development. Cuomo's comments brought cheers by pro-frackers, with one member of the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York telling Fox 40 on Monday Cuomo's comments will open the eyes of many in the area looking to make a living.

On Tuesday,  those against the drilling process are giving a different spin on Cuomo's comments.

"If you have a vast industrialization of a region there are going to be jobs. That's not the critical issue. The critical issue is are the pollution hazards going to be irreparable?" said Walter Hang, President of Toxics Targeting.

Southern Tier residents who support gas development will gather in Otsiningo Park on Bevier Street in Binghamton on Friday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. in support of President Obama and his stand on natural gas.
