Election day is a mere 19 days away, and the Marcellus Shale Coalition wants to remind voters that Pa. is better off thanks to natural gas development.
The group released a new video this week for its annual meeting in Pittsburgh, keynoted by former Gov. Dick Thornburgh. It is a compilation of positive local news coverage of gas development and its impacts.
There are a few state legislative races – like Dave Levdansky v. Rep. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) and Paul Drucker v. Rep. Warren Kampf (R-Chester) – where Democratic challengers seek to make the race, in part, a referendum on gas drilling.
The video also features Diana Irey Vaughan, the Washington County Commissioner who is running for Pa. Treasurer. Washington County has enjoyed tremendous economic growth as a result of Marcellus.
