Remove non-citizen members of the Gas Well Task Force in Denton

      Lewisville, TX

The members of the Gas WellTask Force ought to represent the interest of Denton as a community. However, some of the members are not residents of Denton and therefore cannot speak on behalf of other community members. Not only are certain members residents of other municipalities, they are also involved in the oil and gas industry, which presents a strong bias towards the interests of these industries, not the people of Denton.

      Non resident appointees should be advisory only without voting rights.

      Only Denton residents should be making recommendations to our City Council. Bias toward the industry can give inaccurate information about this important decision.

      All politics is local, as the saying goes, and these people are NOT local.

      A community task force should reflect the opinions of that community. Not exterior interests.

      I want our city/county to have individuals committed to preserving our community and health involved in making decisions that impact us and our future; individuals who live here.
