Statement of the Frack Free Denton/Denton Drilling Awareness Group Board

We expected the oil and gas industry to sue the citizens of Denton after we voted to ban fracking.

Unfortunately, industry has met our expectations. They have apparently learned nothing from last night’s landslide vote. They have taken no time to reflect on their own irresponsible actions that brought the people of Denton to this point.

Industry could have taken this moment to address why the ban was passed. Instead they’re going to try to squash it.

If justice prevails, and we think it will, they will lose.
