West Virginia citizens seeking to defeat the Mountaineer Gas pipeline are calling on the Shepherdstown Town Council to reject the pipeline proposal that would cut through the eastern panhandle of West Virginia.
The Eastern Panhandle Protectors are on the agenda for the town council’s July 11 meeting and will urge the council to come out publicly against the pipeline.
“We are calling on the Town Council to reject this pipeline,” said Tracy Cannon, an organizer with Eastern Panhandle Protectors. “The gas company has used bullying tactics to secure to land needed to build the pipeline. The gas would come from hydraulic fracturing, which is harmful to the people’s health and the environment.”
Cannon urged all of those concerned about the adverse impacts of the pipeline on the community to attend the meeting July 11 at 6:30 pm at Shepherdstown Town Hall, 104 S King St, Shepherdstown, West Virginia 25443.
