Restaurateur Jimmy Carbone of Jimmy’s No. 43, a co-founder of our organization,  has signed our letter to Governor Cuomo, asking him to ban fracking in New York State. Jimmy says: “New York  State has a rich tradition of agriculture and agricultural value-added products. I believe New York State — especially the regions of the Marcellus Shale region — deserve positive, long term economic development related to farming and food production. That’s why I’m a co-founder of Chefs for the Marcellus.”
