“By accepting over $10,000 from firms defending polluters like Chesepeake, BP and Seacor Holdings Wagner has proven his allegiance to the frackers. Using Wacky Wagner’s trojan horse candidacy, big oil and gas is attempting to lay out the welcome mat in New York for fracking. Unlike Wacky Wagner, Greg Ball has not and will not accept money from fracking companies or those who defend them. From personally touring Pennsylvania’s gaslands to introducing landmark, bipartisan legislation to hold big oil, big gas and fracking companies accountable, no Senator has done more to protect New York from the dangers of fracking than Greg Ball. Wacky Wagner’s invitation of Senator Avella, who has personally attacked our Governor, is a fatal rookie mistake. Attacking Governor Cuomo and aligning with the one Senator who has so polarized himself from this good Governor is not the way to move forward on this complicated issue. We must partner with Governor Cuomo, appealing to his fairness, to institute a proper moratorium until the funding, manpower and regulations are in place to safely oversee this industry; an industry that has proven it is outright incapable of regulating itself,” Said Joe Bachmeier, Ball’s Campaign Press Secretary
