The Wayne Democratic Organization held its 2nd Annual Earth Day Celebration/Rally on Saturday, April 27th. Guest speakers included Mayor Chris Vergano, Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik, as well as Matt Smith from Food & Water Watch, and Paula Rogovin from No Meadowlands Power Plant/Coalition to Ban Unsafe Oil Trains.

Neither the wind nor the chill in the air could dampen the enthusiasm of all who came.
The February meeting had guest speaker Matt Smith from Food and Water Watch, who focused on practical ways to combat climate change including opposing the proposed Meadowlands Power Plant to supply electricity to New York. (Fact Sheet – Sign petition here.) Matt was followed by Jackie Schram from the local group Franciscan Response to Fossil Fuels whose members were guests at the meeting.
