Don’t FRACK the Northern Neck . . . .


    . . . or any other part of Virginia.

    Fracking is about to come to Virginia’s Northern Neck:

    Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star, October 2013…

    A Texas-based energy company that has leased tens of thousands of acres east of Fredericksburg hopes to begin drilling for gas and oil within 18 months.

    Concerned Northern Neck citizens will meet this Sunday, 27 July, 3:00 – 5:00 PM at Trinity Episcopal Church, 8484 Mary Ball Road, Lancaster.

    “Fracking:  Implications for the Northern Neck.”

    Discussion led by Albert Pollard, former member VA HOD.

    Food, too — can’t meet in a church without food.  Music, too.

    Y’ALL COME!!!!

    Lancaster is on Highway 3 in Lancaster County — from Warsaw pick up Hwy 3 toward Kilmarnock, Lancaster and Trinity Episcopal are about 22 miles from Warsaw, 7 miles before Kilmarnock.

    Meanwhile, April 2014, reps from the Texas company addressed a town hall meeting in Dahlgren and tried their best to avoid answering serious questions:…

    Representatives from the Texas company that wants to drill for natural gas in the region gave their first formal presentation, then fielded questions from residents-and were reminded several times to stop changing the subject.

    Officials from Shore Exploration and Production Corp., which eventually plans to move its headquarters to Bowling Green, attended King George County Supervisor Ruby Brabo’s town hall meeting Monday night in Dahlgren.
