Bradford County Commissioners Trip to Texas: A Behind the Scenes Look...

There's an interesting post today on the blog: Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS that tells us a bit more about Bradford County commissioners' investigative trip to Wise County last summer to learn about the impact of gas drilling. To read all about it, CLICK HERE.


  1. Is that what we sent the commissioners to texas for? To hob nob with the industry and go to fancy dinners??? I thought they were going on a fact finding mission to learn what drilling does in communities. This seems kind of like when the lobbyists took all those politicians to Scotland to play golf.

    I'm outraged! I want my money back!

  2. Thanks for posting this information, it tells another side to the story we all here in Bradford County heard about our comissioners trip to Texas. It looks like we got the PR polished version, while the real story went untold until now.

  3. It's a shame that our political leaders are so focused on the short term profits at the expense of the long term cost of the industry presence. Bradford County will be transformed from a poor rural County to a poor industrial waste site.

  4. Doug McLinko is rubber stamping the whole thing. I am SO unimpressed by his scarfing up compensation by taxpayers while selling us Bradford County citizens out. It's not about GOP / Dems any more, it's about health in an already cancer vulnerable area. The real questions and hard work isn't being done. Just talk and selling out and CYA. Disgusted voter.
