Large Combined Upstate NY Landowner Meeting June 21

MDN received the following announcement about a combined landowner coalition meeting happening tomorrow night (Thursday night) in Otego, NY. Two coalitions will meet together: The Central New York Landowner Coalition and the Unatego Land Coalition. MDN knows from previous meetings that we’ve attended that the CNY coalition is quite large, perhaps the single largest New York coalition with thousands of active members. The meeting will feature a screening of the new Truthland movie along with a presentation by former NY DEC Commissioner Mike Zagata.

We also would like to take a collection for Jennifer Huntington to help her expenses in her legal fight over Middlefield’s ban on natural gas drilling.  Her legal victory will be a victory for us all.  Your donation monies will be a good investment, not just for her, but for your future as well.
