Preston Unveils Online Natural Gas Resource Guide


Binghamton, NY – Broome County Executive Debbie Preston joined Director of the Office of Energy Development Margaret Scarinzi to unveil the County’s new online natural gas resource guide.

My administration is committed to providing our residents with valuable services and information,” says Broome County Executive Debbie Preston. “This online tool will be a tremendous resource for the community as we strive to build a better Broome County.”


This new resource guide is a comprehensive look at valuable natural gas related information and services, and is meant to answer people’s questions about the natural gas industry.


It provides news content, emergency information, employment information and contact information for residents, businesses and industry.


“Let me be clear. While I support safe natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale, this website is not a push to permit safe natural gas drilling in the state,” added Preston.


“This website provides people a variety of answers on the natural gas industry,” says Margaret Scarinzi, Director of the Office of Energy Development. “People use natural gas to heat their homes, power their vehicles, and as an alternative to other energy sources.”
