Governor Cuomo, Stop Fracking Around with Our Health

Friday, August 10, 2012 12:00 am

By -- STATE SEN. BILL PERKINS, New York Amsterdam News

I’m New York State Sen. Bill Perkins; I’m opposed to hydrofracking because it puts our children’s future at risk. New York City residents have a tremendous stake in whether Gov. Andrew Cuomo allows hydrofracking in New York. This dangerous method of natural gas drilling threatens our water, air, food and health. Along with a growing number of elected officials, local leaders and community organizations, I have come to the conclusion that fracking is not safe and should be banned statewide.

Legislators Stand in Solidarity with 17-year old Trayvon Martin and his family and stand up against stereotyping and reckless actions.

Senator Perkins and Colleagues are Trayvon Martin

We are each Trayvon Martin. We are all black men, who because of demonizing stereotypes, are subject to the irrational hysterical response of people who maintain that we are intimidating and frightening. Gangs, police officers and individuals, are all subject to this societal fixation of seeing black men as ‘the bad guy.’
