The Mariner East 2 pipeline poses an enormous public safety hazard to Middletown Township. Current local elected officials have failed to protect Middletown residents, but we can do something to change that.
That’s why Allyson Galloway and George Siter are running for Middletown Town Council. Food & Water Action has endorsed Allyson and George because they have pledged to do what it takes to protect their community from this pipeline.
The ME2 does not carry ‘natural gas’ that many people use to heat our homes or operate a kitchen stove. This pipeline carries exceptionally dangerous Highly Volatile Liquids like ethane, propane, butane, and pentane. When they are super-pressurized in the pipeline, they are in the liquid state. However, once a leak occurs, these chemicals vaporize, becoming a low-lying cloud of explosive, odorless gas. They do not disperse into the air. They travel with the wind. And once they find an ignition source, they explode.
The pipeline runs within 450 feet of Glenwood Elementary School. Despite repeated promises, the current Middletown Councilmembers have not completed a risk assessment of the impacts of the pipeline, and have certainly not stood up for the safety of residents.
Allyson Galloway and George Siter are the only candidates running for Middletown Town Council who will put their community’s well-being before the interests of a giant pipeline company.
Please join us on November 7 to protect our Middletown from the Mariner East 2 pipeline by voting for Allyson Galloway and George Siter.
