  1. It is “unfortunate” that Governor Elect Tom Wolfe has not seen the light that Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York state has and has banned fracking. Tom Wolfe thinks that he can “have his cake and eat it too.” Perhaps it is the $273,000 in campaign contributions from the gas industry that has influenced this decision making. Well if that is the case, he will not be living up to the oath of office that he will be taking on the 20th. Article 1, Section 27 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of PA states very clearly that the elected officials of the government are supposed to preserve and protect the environment for present and future citizens of the state. It is “unfortunate” that he has also not abided by the resolution of the PA Democratic Committee passed on June 13, 2013, passed by a vote of 115 to 87, calling for a moratorium on fracking until it can be proven safe. So it is up to us to make Tom Wolfe feel the heat until he can see the light. Good luck with trying to pass a 5% extraction tax from a Tea Party dominated, anti-tax, anti-regulatory and anti-government legislature.

Got something to say about this?
