Corbett Keynotes Phila Natgas Summit Friday June 14th
Gov. Corbett, who just fired DCNR Secretary Rick Allan today, is scheduled to be the morning keynote speaker tomorrow, Friday morning, at the Pennsylvania Natural Gas Summit, sponsored by the industry-supported Keystone Energy Forum.
Please come early even if you can’t stay for the public event. We heard on the street that a demonstration is being called at 9:15 AM (not by us but by grassroots activists who work with many groups).
When: Friday, June 14th, 9:30 am to 2 pm
Where: The Franklin Institute’s Pepper Hall, 222 North 20th Street, Phila.
Register: Call Steve Armold of API at (717) 234-7983
The forum is free. Please register by phone (717) 234-7983 – the e-registration system is not working. If you can attend inside, we encourage you to speak up. Protecting Our Waters cannot organize an emergency demonstration but we support anyone who does. Corbett’s keynote is approximately 9:30 AM. From the Inquirer:
Speakers at the Philadelphia summit will include representatives of the American Petroleum Institute, the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P., Braskem America Inc., the Finishing Trades Institute of the Mid-Atlantic Region and Philadelphia Gas Works.
