Tom and Mary’s back room deal: you don’t matter, XTO does

January 16, 2011


Read the deal here: THE DEAL

Tom Leppert met with XTO/EXXON/MOBIL officials on Tuesday of last week and hammered out a deal that puts the entire city of Dallas at peril and living on the edge of environmental damage uncertainty. Once again, he and Mary Suhm have negotiated behind closed doors without input from the rest of the city as to the quality of life in Dallas. This ‘deal with the devil’ extends the XTO gas lease for ANOTHER 30 months with ineffective regulations that were crafted by District  3 city  planning commissioner Mike Anglin.

It is obvious by reading this document that  from the beginning, Leppert and Suhm have wanted this deal to go through at any cost and have asked Anglin to put forth his wimpy, weak, and ineffective requirements. By rolling over and having XTO frack the hell out of our lives, this will have an effect on all of Dallas for decades to come. No 24/7 air monitors are required. Inspections every 60 days? Reasonable time? Notification of inspections? This is a sweet deal for XTO and potential disaster for everyone.

This will all come up for a vote on Wednesday, January 19th at 9 am. If you do not show up, its a done deal.

We all breathe the same air and we all drink the same water.

    OK, it’s been at least 30 minutes. Let’s have your take. Is there a Task Force or isn’t there? When will it be up and running and what is it’s mission? Is now the time to bombard the council with suggestions for task force members and issues?
