Chris Kelly: Breaking Away

Chris Kelly reminds us that this opposition is a marathon, not a sprint. There will be peaks and valley's. 2015 is the year that the people found their voices and we are shouting to our elected officials in unison, "Enough is enough!"

Let 2015 go down as the year Scranton began celebrating its 150th birthday and Lackawanna County finally started growing up.

A citizen-led fight against an indefensible 50-year expansion of Keystone Sanitary Landfill in Dunmore and Throop gained ground. Grassroots opposition to a natural-gas-fired power plant in Jessup spotlighted the folly of selling out small communities to giant corporations for a few jobs and a pittance paid in lieu of taxes.
