Why are the Governor, his administration, and Albany Mayor Sheehan
derailing oil trains? To be sure safety is important. The oil trains have been
arriving at the Port of Albany for many months. The timing of the objections
are politically motivated.
The flow of Baakan oil to Albany offers a tremendous economic opportunity for the
City of Albany and for local residents.
Build a refinery at the Port to refine the Baakan oil.
This will benefit the City tax base and help close
the City 16m dollar budget gap.
City homeowners and businesses will benefit from
real property tax relief.
Reidents of the City of Albany and Capital District
will benefit from high paying jobs, and
lower costs for gasoline and home heating oil.
Be safe, NOT stupid! Joseph P Sullivan
