In response, economist Jannette Barth, Ph.D., wrote a letter on behalf of Catskill Citizens calling on the DEC to extend the public comment period so New Yorkers can consider the revised socioeconomic study. Dr. Barth's letter has been cosigned by more than one hundred others, including over sixty organizations and many elected officials
