HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP: He’s seen Lester work against PennEast pipeline

Bob Higgins, Hopewell Township
I write in response to Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman’s mistaken assertion that Mayor Harvey Lester has “left Hopewell Township vulnerable to the pipeline.”
Since PennEast has appeared on the scene, I have observed Mayor Lester work through every possible channel to block the pipeline. He has denied them access to township-owned property for surveys.
As chair of the Board of Health, he held a public hearing to investigate the potential public health impacts of the pipeline, and introduced a resolution objecting to the pipeline, which has been sent to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Just this month, under his leadership, the Township Committee voted to officially intervene in the FERC process, and Mayor Lester is an intervenor in his own right as well.
Harvey Lester has been at the forefront of the movement against PennEast from the beginning, and, as a former Township Committee member, I hope he will be re-elected to continue this fight. 
