No need for Sabal Trail pipeline or its threats –LCDP to Judge in Leesburg, GA

A judge in Leesburg, GA is considering Sabal Trail’s demand for Georgia eminent domain and a Mitchell County landowner family’s countersuit for criminal trespass. LCDP Chair Tom Hochschild filed the LCDC resolution against the Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline as an Amicus curiae, including GA State Rep. Dexter Sharper’s letter against the pipeline (PDF). Other Amicus briefs were filed by SpectraBusters, WWALS Watershed Coalition, and Students Against Violating the Environment. There’s no need for this destructive and hazardous pipeline that threatens our water, or lands, our schools, and our economy.

It also helps if there are local hospitals, but several rural Georgia hospitals have closed recently. We need a new insurance commissioner: Liz Johnson.

Here’s the video: Continue reading
