Gas lawyer threatens Otego with lawsuit

(Continued)

“The moratorium is basically a petition drive for an extremist environmental viewpoint that fossil fuels are evil,” Downey said.

Stuart Anderson of Otego, an opponent of hydrofracking, said Joy’s

letter “was intending to be intimidating.”

“I don’t think there was a whole lot in that letter the board members haven’t already heard and gone over a few times,” he added.

Like Downey, Anderson said he could not offer a prediction on the outcome of the moratorium vote.

Downey said most of the support for a moratorium is concentrated in the village of Otego. He suggested that the village enact the moratorium rather than imposing the views of its residents on the rest of the town.
