Hamburg Town Board Calls for Boycott of Exxon-Mobil

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – The Hamburg Town Board passed a resolution Monday night calling for a boycott of the Exxon-Mobil Corporation, in response to skyrocketing gasoline prices. Town Council Member Kathy Hochul sponsored the measure.

"We thought it was important to stand up and send a strong message to Corporate America," Hochul said.

Hochul says the local resolution will be forwarded to Exxon-Mobil's C-E-O. She says the boycott will continue until the price of gas drops back below $2 per gallon.
