LETTER – Activists Protest Egregious Exxon Settlement Deal at Governor’s Hasbrouck Heights Town Hall Meeting

WHAT:          Environmental, community, and faith-based groups will be joining together to bring the message directly to Gov. Christie that NJ residents oppose the NJDEP’s proposed Exxon Settlement
