Southern Tier Responds to Rob Astorino’s Ridiculous Fracking Comments in Vestal


May 5, 2014

Contact: Isaac Silberman-Gorn,

On behalf of the Save The Southern Tier network, Isaac Silberman-Gorn released the following statement:

“Did Rob Astorino mean to be in Texas today, or was he just in the Southern Tier on their behalf? Astorino got one thing right in his quick opportunistic trip – fracking in NY would make our Southern Tier the “Dallas of New York” complete with out-of-state workers, Lone Star State oil and gas companies and rampant air pollution. Not even a week ago, the American Lung Association reported that Dallas has the 8th worst air quality in the country. Astorino should stop touting jobs for Texans and the toxic air that comes with fracking.”

“While he seems to have plenty of time on behalf of Texans, Mr. Astorino still has not taken the time to respond to our scientifically-based letter. We hope he will do so.”
