The Allegheny Voice focuses on environmental issues affecting the Allegheny River Watershed in western Pennsylvania and western New York by providing an alternative to the small newspapers in the rural counties, which generally ignore environmental issues or side with commercial interests, especially the oil and gas industry.
While New York State and Pennsylvania environmental politics deserve scrutiny, The Allegheny Voice aims to give special attention to local environmental politics of Allegheny River towns and counties.
The Allegheny River Counties in New York State are Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany.
In Pennsylvania, the Counties in the Allegheny River Watershed are Potter, McKean, Warren, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Elk, Clearfield, Venango, Clarion, Jefferson, Armstrong, Butler, Indiana, Westmoreland, Cambria, Somerset, and Allegheny.
