Past “Blood Money” recipients at http://arlingtonfoundation.org/ are as follows…. but first my message to the industry is this…..
If the drilling industry will use electric rigs, invent technology to prevent silica dust from leaving the drill sites, use ATMOS gas to frack with, show water and soil tests from mud farming are NOT going into our storm drains and produce, put scrubbers on open hatch flowback tanks or use ventless, pressurized flowback tanks, then they only have to guarantee that the cement casings won’t rot, and that the steel casings can withstand earthquakes, and that the injection wells will not eventually migrate and contaminate our ground water….nevermind the human errors/accidents from the huge build out that “is not” an acceptable amount because you can’t find willing sacrifical lambs!!! We live in BarnettShaleHell and you can’t fix that! You cannot undrill those wells, unpollute the water, unsicken the people & animals, and unpollute the air!
PS please guarantee that the feds won’t come after the landowners to clean up any messes you (the drillers) are exempt from…http://www.ohio.com/blogs/drilling/ohio-utica-shale-1.291290/could-landowners-be-held-liable-for-drilling-cleanups-1.363150

Conflict of Interest Information Form
Name: Kim Feil Title: BarnettShaleHell blogger
Please describe below any relationships, positions, or circumstances in which you are involved that you believe could contribute to a Conflict of Interest (as defined in FOUNDATION’s Policy on Conflicts of Interest) arising.
1. Councilmember Bennett approves gas well permits and disperses funds
2. Councilwoman Wolff approves gas well permits and disperses funds
3. Councilman Galaspie approves gas wells and disperses funds
I hereby certify that the information set forth above is true and complete to the best of my (conscience)………
UPDATE…..ArlingtonVoice newspaper has interviewed me and this is what I submitted…..The Arlington Tomorrow Foundation is not contributing to a thriving Arlington, but rather depriving Arlington’s future by the very existence of industrialized sites co-existing in neighborhoods and near schools. This hamster wheel of fortune is seeded with blood money for our guinea pig experiment under the guise of good deeds which makes those in leadership positions vying for these funds part of the shale prostitution problem when they are really good people with good intentions.
How do you feel about City Council members being able to sit on the ATF board which decides which organizations get what money? Is this a conflict of interest?
If someone asked me to give an example of conflict of interest, I would site this incestuous relationship since council votes to permit the gas wells “and” as a council majority on the board also gets to decide “who” should receive these funds, which then makes them the pimps of this city’s shale prostitution ring. My husband thinks this money should be given back to the people and not to special interest groups.
What would you say to businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations who have benefited from money distributed by the ATF?
I would say that you who are entrusted with positions of leadership and influence that you have been misled, that you have been corrupted by the devil’s oldest trick in the book. No amount of money cannot buy back the damage done to our city’s livibility image, it’s air quality, affected market real estate values, and very possbily the long term health of our residents.
Any additional comments you would like to include would be great. I live & blog in BarnettShaleHell.wordpress.com
