Equity for St. Lawrence County

April, 2014


The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224


Dear Governor Cuomo:


I have signed this petition to request that you personally assist and intervene on behalf of St. Lawrence County and each of its towns and school districts that host the New York Power Authority’s St. Lawrence-FDR power project to secure:


(1)A fair and equitable resolution of the on-going 10-year review of the existing host community agreement with NYPA,

(2) Benefits that are comparable to those provided to the NYPA Niagara power project host communities in Western New York, and

(3) Economic assistance that will serve to repair our economy, which has suffered significant job losses as a result of the shutdown of General Motors and partial shutdown of Alcoa, consistent with the legislative policy statement that the St. Lawrence-FDR Project “shall in all respects be for the aid, improvement and benefit of commerce and navigation along the St. Lawrence River.”


We, the undersigned, strongly urge you to assist our communities to receive fair and equitable treatment and the financial support from NYPA that is necessary to secure our economic future.
