Plan of Action Until Election Day/More Amazingly Powerful Letters Sent to Andrew Cuomo/Prominent Fractivists Respectfully Write Green Groups


Congratulations on yet another day without even one fracked shale gas production well anywhere in New York.

As you will see from the Primary Election clips below, we succeeded beyond all expectations in making Marcellus Shale fracking a critical reelection issue for Andrew Cuomo. Fractivists are repeatedly credited with playing a key role in helping Zephyr Teachout win an unprecedented share of Gubernatorial Primary votes.

I write today to outline how we can use that achievement to our best advantage in the weeks to come.

Thank You and Congratulations on Yet Another Historic Fractivist Day


Before all is said and done by the end of this extraordinarily important day, I want to commend all the Fractivists who worked so hard on behalf of this campaign during the last few weeks, recent months and nearly five long years.

Your unstinting efforts have collectively achieved yet another high-point in our drive to keep New York safe from Marcellus Shale fracking hazards. Thank you so much.
