Fracking & City Council Election
Did you know that PXP has now done over 150 frack jobs using a variety of differently named processes in the nearby oil field? Concerned about the escalating magnitude and intensity of the earthquakes we are experiencing? Are these fracking related? You or neighbors smell heavy noxious odors in early hours when there;s a marine layer? Concerned? Want answers?
Incumbents seeking re-election ask we wait till CA puts a moratorium in effect. Waiting till. . . concerns me, especially as the oil company is ramping up its efforts to make haste now there's no moratorium. In times of great haste accidents and disasters tend to occur.
Christopher King walks his talk as he vies for a seat on the City Council. His vision and platform that invites your participatory involvement bears witness to his responsiveness to our Community's concerns.
Christopher King and I invite you and every Culver City resident to come tell us your concerns. At last City Council people testified re toxic smells and high number of cancers in various Culver City neighborhoods; others now suffer asthma, subsidence and cracks in their homes. The City's current oil company indemnification bond is inadequate to cover extensive damages.
No matter what part of Culver City you live in, you are at risk! Culver City sits on three active earthquake fault lines, the earth beneath us is badly fissured. The 1985 Ross Dress-for-Less fires, whether a natural occurrence or oil drilling induced, teaches us important lessons. So too the disastrous collapse of the Baldwin Hills Dam. One big mistake by the oil company can cost us our property and/or our lives.
We need a strong, defendable prohibiton or moratorium until proven safe – and we need it now! Christopher King is willing to stand up for us as he organizes this response to our City Attorney's welcoming more input from the citizenry.
Remember April 8th a vote for King is a Vote to stop fracking!
