Oil & Gas fracking Industry continues to buy its way throughout our area
Pictured above at left is Jose Ceballos, spokesman for ANGA; the American Natural Gas Alliance after apparently donating some computers to our local churches. It's hard to argue against that! ANGA's standard operating practices include going into communities where they'll be fracking and literally buying their way around.
What better advertising can the industry get than having the local media cover and publicize these strategically calculated donations? An example of the way they work, ANGA recently funded a film project by some students from Encinal entitled Got Gas? Predictably, the film focuses on only the positive side of the fracking boom currently engulfing Encinal and other communities in South Texas, including Webb county.
What are the chances that ANGA has been throwing money around our elected officials whether they be at the local, county, state and/or federal level?
