Call or Write Gov. Cuomo Opposing Crestwood

Dear Friends,

Below is the text from a mass mailing that Crestwood sent out a few weeks ago. Among other things, they include a stamped envelope with a letter of support to Cuomo. They are really working it.

The number included goes directly to "Level 3 Communications" in Binghamton.

This is precisely why we need YOU to contact Cuomo and tell him why you are opposed to gas storage. Their NY Propane Advocacy site is riddled with misinformation and non-truths.

Call or write Cuomo today: 518-474-8390, or go to this link for a sample letter to email or mail:

Please heed this plea for calls to Gov Cuomo, asking him to deny Crestwood's Finger Lakes LPG Storate application to store up to LPG in geologically faulted salt mines beside Seneca Lake. The storage in this type of salt mine is the most dangerous way to store LPG. And Finger Lakes LPG does not have - nor are they required to have - the resources to restore the damage caused by a catastrophic explosion, such as the one in Hutchinson, Kansas (see Finger Lakes LPG would simply abandon the site, leaving the inhabitants to carry on as best they could amid the wreckage.

Thank you
