Concerned residents who raised some serious questions regarding health and safety issues potentially linked to fracking of oil wells within Brea have been snubbed by Hizoner The Pool Boy. Ignoring campaign promises to support the people of Brea and promote greater transparency in government, Mayor Murdock and Mayor Pro Tem Marick have turned their backs on these concerned residents and given Linn Energy an opportunity to shove their PR message down Brean’s throats.
Not a level playing field.
Putting Linn Energy on tonight’s agenda while failing to give citizens ample opportunity and time to prepare an equivalent presentation of their position is appalling. If educating the Council on fracking is Murdock’s intent, why would he turn his back on residents and address only information favoring the oil and gas industry’s position?
Is he getting a discount on his pomade? Are campaign contributions riding on this? I have no idea. In the coming months I suppose all of this will sort itself out. I hope you will be watching Channel 3 tonight, or will tap into the video stream on the city’s website and see for yourself what transpires. I know I’ll be watching.
Don’t take my word for it…
