Editor’s note: The following letter was written to New York City Mayor Bloomberg. The author asked that it be reprinted here as a letter to the editor.
Dear Mr. Bloomberg,
I am writing from a small town called Andes in the Catskill Mountains, a place I call home, and you and your constituents call your watershed. My wife and I are landowners here having purchased 370 acres, some of it 24 years ago, and are planning to keep it as open space maintaining fields and forest. What I am writing to you about are two things, natural gas drilling and fairness.
