NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Having read the recent rebuttal of a news article by a Pulaski Township supervisor I can only say I was amused.
For those of us who were in attendance at those meetings and being one of the ones whose recorder was taken and held for 17 days, I can only say, “Wow.”
Stop the insanity, the supervisors have already succeeded in putting Pulaski Township in a bad light.
I would not want to be an employee in Pulaski Township wondering if I am next to be thrown under the bus.
Or maybe this is just a diversion to draw attention from that special meeting, to approve another gas well. Drawing attention from what poses a real problem, that we in Pulaski Township have elected officials who hold gas leases on their properties. We even have one who is employed by the gas company that’s seeking approval for these wells.
Elected officials are making decisions to approve what may or may not be directly financially beneficial to each of them. To date, no gas well requests have been denied and paperwork from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection shows a gas well that had been approved for one supervisor’s property and another approved that could directly benefit a supervisor and family members.
We should ask ourselves, how can people who hold such interest and can benefit financially from their direct decisions make honest unbiased decisions for their taxpayers. The truth is, they can’t.
