PA Greens push for an end to fracking

Only 44 days remain until Election Day and only 33 days until the early voting period in Nassau and Suffolk counties. New York's Second Congressional District is electing successor to longtime Republican Rep. Pete King of Seaford. While it is natural that many South Shore Long Islanders will be eyeing the Democratic and Republican sides of the ballot in November, Green Party candidate Harry R. Burger is asking for a second look in his third-party column. Burger, 37, of Deer Park, is running a different campaign than his Democratic and Republican opponents. He holds different ideals. He has a different background. Maybe most important, this campaign is his first in politics, making him the race's only neophyte. Continue reading
