Lipari annoucnes bid for Hector Town Council

Robert “Bo” Lipari announced today that he is running for a seat on the Hector Town Council. Lipari said “I have called Hector home for 31 years and plan to stay here for the rest of my life. Today, Hector’s water, roads, and growing wine and tourism industries are threatened by a fracking industry invasion that will devastate our natural resources and destroy our local economy.””Tourists will not come to an area where roads are clogged with hundreds of huge trucks, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” Lipari continued. “They will not come to see a landscape dotted with hundreds of drilling pads, storage facilities, and pipelines. And how can the growing reputation of our fine Finger Lakes wines be sustainable when chemical leaks, spills and industrial accidents contaminate our soil and water?”Stating his goals as a council member, Lipari said “There is much to do in Hector, and if elected I will work with fellow council members to solve the many budgetary challenges facing Hector and its residents today. In addition, I will introduce and work to pass a ban on heavy industrial activities, such as fracking, in the Town of Hector.”Lipari’s website is www.protecthector.org.
