080305gasheads1sdc.JPGBrad Gill, executive director of the Independent Oil & Gas Association of New York.The series of anti-drilling letters that ran April 21 demonstrate the inability or unwillingness of some people to educate themselves on the facts regarding natural gas exploration.

Face of the coalition and letters to the editor needed

We need 20 or so people to write letters to the editor concerning pro drilling. If you are interested and can commit to doing this, please email Richard directly at Rlasky@frontiernet.net with your telephone contact.
We are also looking for 5 people who are having a difficult time holding on and need the gas money to survive. These people will be interviewed for a movie and it will be a very very important step to get publicity against the tree huggers. We need these 5 asap.
