Karla Thomas to Byron Brown: Steve Casey is Ruining You

This letter is not intended for Mayor Brown. It is addressed to the man whose leadership I have followed for over two decades.

On behalf of myself and our community, I am appealing to the sensibilities of the man who this community entrusted their safety and caretaking through the electoral process.

Fracking Protest on Thursday

Outraged citizens from across Western New York, along with the Green party candidate for New York State Governor Howie Hawkins, will gather in Buffalo on Thursday, October 28 at 4pm, in front of the Buffalo office of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ( 270 Michigan Avenue at the corner of Seneca Street) to protest the DEC’s decision to endorse hydrofracking. In their Strategic Plan for State Forest Management, the DEC has approved the new controversial natural gas extraction method known as fracking. Protesters will confront the DEC and its decision that will affect human health, ecosystems, and waters of over 786,000 acres of the public’s lands. Protesters will demand a statewide ban on all hydrofracking and hand an open letter to the DEC demanding a statewide ban on hydrofracking.
