Who will run for Governor in New York State?

The Governor’s race for New York State is in 2010. Who will run against present, Democratic Party Governor David Paterson? (And, for that matter, is there any chance that Paterson will not run?

NY Governor donated 25K to Working Families Party

KW: As some of you may know, there is a healthy rivalry between the Green Party and the Working Families Party (WFP) in New York.

Who to call to Stop Broadwater

What would you say if a company wanted to build a factory in Central Park? An oil refinery in the Grand Canyon? So what do you say to Shell Oil when they want to build Broadwater, a gas plant right in the middle of Long Island Sound? It’s Our Water, Not Broadwater. You need to […]

Save the Long Island Sound: Call to stop Broadwater now!

Call NY Governor David Paterson at 518-474-8390 or 518-474-7516 and tell him to “Say NO to Broadwater.” Shell Oil and TransCanada are proposing to put Broadwater–an industrial, liquefied natural gas facility in Long Island Sound.
