In less than two weeks–on Tuesday, May 6th–thousands of farmers, laborers, landowners, conservation groups, local government leaders, and the business community, will gather together at PA’s State Capitol in Harrisburg, PA for a historic march. United Shale Advocates is orchestrating a unique Pennsylvania Jobs, Pennsylvania Energy rally that will bring thousands of Pennsylvanians together to speak with a united voice in support of responsible energy development. Why march? Policy proposals in Harrisburg – including burdensome layers of new energy taxes on job creators and consumers, as well as other measures, would heavily tip the competitive scales against Pennsylvania – would place everything that’s been achieved at risk. Now is the time to march and to make our collective voices heard–loudly.
MDN has been warning you since last year that Marcellus drilling is at risk in Pennsylvania–from moratoriums, high severance taxes and frivolous lawsuits. This event is for anyone who supports Marcellus Shale drilling–your chance to express your loud and strong support to politicians and the media. A crowd of thousands will get noticed–make no mistake. Would you PLEASE consider joining us? And we say “us” because MDN editor Jim Willis (a native New Yorker) will attend and march in support of shale drilling in PA. Yes, it’s a sacrifice and takes a day of your time. But it’s worth it. Below are the agenda and details for how you can join us and get a FREE bus ride to the event. However, the deadline to sign up for a spot on a bus is tomorrow, April 25th–so you need to sign up right away…
YOU CAN STILL REGISTER ONLINE. PLEASE JOIN JIM ON THE BUS! LET’S FILL THE SUSQUEHANNA COUNTY BUS…
