Ban the Frack
My new town, Ulysses, appears poised to ban hydrofracking by updating its zoning laws.
This is a far cry better than the Town of Caroline, where a move to ban banning was just recently defeated.
So far, the towns of Dryden and Ithaca have effectively banned hydrofracking. I hope (and trust) that Ulysses will soon join them; from my understanding, the town council is firmly behind it.
When need to send a firm and unwavering message that fracking has no place in Tompkins County. It is the desire of the the very few to impose their will on the many.
