On Saturday, June 16th Assemblywoman Sandy Galef will screen video footage of her February trip to Pennsylvania where she sought more information on the process of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, commonly known as hydrofracking, and how it is affecting the region. This will be the third such screening of this film. The first two were tremendously well received. For all who could not attend either of the previous two screenings, this is an opportunity to learn more about a controversial and highly politicized topic. During the trip to Bradford County, PA, the Assemblywoman met with community leaders, elected officials, and residents in an attempt to better understand the impact hydrofracking has on a local community. The film, approximately one hour in length, will be followed by an open forum discussion where the pros and cons of allowing hydrofracking in New York will be discussed. The first two screenings were standing room only. The event details are as follows:
Kent Public Library
17 Sybilís Crossing, Kent Lakes
