Councilman “Javelina” Rivera approves most all drill site agenda items…turns out he should have abstained…council members also manage the gas drilling funds…wow.
Oct 2014…update since the link below is no longer working, here is what Peyco currently has on their websites..
“Mineral Rights Leasing and Negotiations:
Jim Maibach and Larry Wallace work hand in hand representing clients needing to sign Barnett Shale gas leases with the gas and oil companies, together these two professionals have negotiated over 150 gas leases for companies located under the Barnett shale formation throughout North Texas. Additionally, we have handled gas pipeline easements, frac ponds, roadway access easements , valve sites and drill sites easements for our clients.”
Well, well, well what’da know….besides (our former) Councilman Mel LeBlanc, I just found out that yet another member of our fine city council works indirectly for the natural gas industry. This is a definite conflict of interest!
Arlington Councilman Robert Rivera a landman? No wonder he votes in favor of most all these drill sites! What good is this joker-he can’t even
speak write in Spanish… but he’ll give you good advice on your (ponzi-scheme prone) minerals. 10/14/ update link no longer works that ties his name to the mineral advisor section …Too bad he has a controlling vote on if you get a gaswell in your backyard!
