Tell the Port Authority, Disqualify PES

12:00 pm - 06/21/2016

846 N Broad St, 2nd FL
Philadelphia PA  19130



For months now, we’ve been mobilizing to pressure the Port Authority and Governor Wolf to prioritize good-paying jobs and our health over fossil fuel expansion. On May 19th, the staff of the Port Authority even came out to a Town Hall meeting in Kingsessing. We shared stories about the impacts of the oil refinery on neighborhood residents and demanded that they immediately disqualify the Philadelphia Energy Solutions’ proposal to expand.

With conflicts of interest on the PRPA Board, we know we can’t sit back and trust them to make the right decision. Board members include real estate investors and corporate lawyers whose interests are more aligned with PES and their corporate allies than working Philadelphians. For instance, board member Robert Clark’s law firm represents 6 companies that are part of plans to develop Philadelphia as an energy hub, including Sunoco, which jointly-owns PES.

That’s why we need you to join on Tuesday, June 21st at 12:30PM at the flagpole in front of the Port Authority building (3460 N Delaware Ave, 19134)!
