Industry Intimidating Dish and Their Supporters

Today Mayor Calvin Tillman posted the following information on his blog. The natural gas companies have made a public info request. It seems the industry wants the names of those that have donated to the Town of Dish environmental legal fund.

I appreciate those who have donated their hard earned money to our cause, but wanted everyone to know that the industry will likely at least know your names, of course unless you donated cash. Please rest assured that we will not give information such as account numbers etc, and we will seek the state attorney general's opinion on anything that is questionable.
For those of you who aren't afraid of the big bad wolf and want to donate, here is the link.
More info to come.

I gave $50 and I'll probably give another $50 next month. My name is Sharon Wilson in case anyone wants to know.

Why would the gas companies want the names of donors? So they can put them on a mailing list in order to sell them something? So they can contact them and convince them that in fact, "gas is good?"


It's nothing more than yet another attempt at intimidation.


Calvin..you're an inspiration.

BTW..my donation is on its way.

We could play the PIA game. If the industry wants to "Dish" (no pun intended) out. We can certainly serve it right back. Plus there are more of us and we will work for justice and principle (free).
