Thank you, Dryden

From earlier today:

12:11 p.m.: DEC Commissioner Joe Martens reveals local fracking bans a "legal game changer."....

12:30 p.m.: [DOH Commissioner] Zucker says he wouldn't live in a community that allows fracking.

12:33 p.m.: State DEC has banned hydraulic fracturing

Local politics can make a huge difference, even in - perhaps especially in - battles that seemed hopeless. The Town of Dryden's passing a drilling ban and persevering in its defense wasn't the only thing that led to today's decision, but it was a critical component of the story.

You can make a difference.
