I was at the Mercer Democratic Rules Committee meeting in Lawrenceville this week and then stopped at the Bordentown / Chesterfield Stop the Pipeline rally. This pipeline is actually a high compression line that will be used to move fuel from PA to the shores of NJ for off shore shipping. The line runs through Bordentown and than to Lakehurst and Manchester. I personally don’t want a pipeline that can destroy everything around it for miles if there is a problem and I don’t want a pipeline that can leak into my water supply. You’d think after CG and South Brunswick Asphalt, we’d have had enough of butane and other harmful chemicals in our water table but the pipeline companies have other thoughts on the matter. Sadly, when I was talking to Assemblyman Dancer, he suggested working with Chris Smith and Tom MacArthur but Tom is all for the pipelines and keeps making crazy statements about thousands of full time jobs and how much we are paying over PA for gas which just isn’t true and Chris Smith has not stepped up to the plate, in fact, when discussing using pipelines as terrorist targets, Smith voted down a proposal to protect our pipelines.
