Cortland County Says ‘No’ to Hydraulic Fracturing

 Cortland County faith leaders and anti- ‘fracking’ advocates were joined with local Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton holding a press conference Thursday at the Christ Community Church to reveal results to a survey poll to show the widespread opposition to the natural gas drilling method.
Pastor Dr. Janet Adair Hansen says the results were not surprising.
“And we were pleased with the outcome, it showed what we see as growing concern in opposition with 58 percent of residents responding that ‘yes’ they were opposed and only about a third say they were in favor,” said Hansen.
Hansen says the county was left out of the public comment places and holding it in the church to show the community of faith is concerned.
The groups involved were Moving in Congregations Acting in Hope and members of the Gas Drilling Awareness of Cortland County.
The survey conducted included 500 adults.
