Add Rochester to No Fracking!

The momentum continues town by town, city by city!
The Rochester City Council voted unanimously to "establish a moratorium on permits, certificates of zoning compliance and variances for exploration and extraction of natural gas within the city".  The public hearing drew a full house.  During the hearing 15 people spoke (14 anti-drilling, 1 pro-drilling) and  R-CAUSE delivered about 400 petitions supporting a City moratorium. 

Two women have worked especially hard to present the dangers of the fracking technology and all it's tentacles:  Anna Sears and Nedra Harvey of R-Cause.  Thank you both for all that you are doing for our region and our state!
