“…[Wilt] failed to publicly disclose his financial ties to a controversial natural gas exploration proposal near Bergton.”
“Wilt’s ties to the possible exploration and his run for the House of Delegates could put him in a position where he will be called on to vote on regulating the natural gas industry from which his family could profit.”
For more, see this story, including Wilt’s attempt at explaining his non-disclosure of this important information. According to Wilt, he has “not hidden anything,” and this was “a nominal fee paid for those mineral rights” regardless.
Yeah, and if you believe that, I’ve got some oil-coated marshland along the Louisiana coast to sell you.
Seriously, though, this is all the more reason to support Kai Degner for Delegate. Because the last thing we need in Richmond is another delegate in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry!
P.S. If you can, please “get on the bus” for Degner on June 12.
