New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2012

The Fantastic Four participate in a debate on the hot topic of Hydrofracking (Hydraulic fracturing) in New York City and New York State Politics.

Gretcher Hernandez Gretcher Hernandez (R, C, IP) represented District 56th and sat in the seat of New York State Senator Joseph E. Robachand and argued against Senate Bill 6261-2011, which recommended a moratorium on the business of Hydrofracking, because she felt it would stop business and industry in New York State from prospering and that by not using the new technology of Hydrofracking to uncover natural gas and resources to help our state grow, we would remain in a stagnant state of a reliance on international oil, which she suggested would break the bank accounts of every New Yorker. Gretcher is an ASAP student, who participated in developing a program for their leadership team and she also joined the Hostos Student Leadership Academy’s Student Ambassador Program, where she excelled as a member, participating as a delegate in the National Model United Nations-New York Conference in 2011, representing Burkina Faso and then serving as a delegate in the National Model United Nations-Washington, D.C. Conference, representing Ghana. Gretcher has also attended the Millennium Campus Conference at Harvard in 2011. Gretcher was selected to be a part of the Ernesto Malave Leadership Academy Student Investment Ambassadors for 2011-2012.
