In Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, Bob Ford is running for Morgan County Commissioner.
In case you doubt what Bob Ford is about, look no further than the issue of fracking.
We interviewed Ford about this last week, and Bob reassured the citizens of Morgan County that fracking is “not going to happen here in Morgan County” but if it does, he’s “definitely not against it.”
Make no doubt, if Ford is elected County Commissioner, he’ll be leading the cheering section for the frackers.
The way he led the cheering section for the incinerator crowd when he last was a County Commissioner – as a Democrat. This year Ford is running as a Republican.
And what about Ford’s prediction that “it’s not going to happen here in Morgan County”?
If that is the case, then why are real estate agents advertising land in remote pristine areas of Morgan County as prime fracking zones?
Check out the recent ad by Matt Omps of Coldwell Banker Premier Homes and Colonial Village Industries.
Omps is selling 250 acres with “incredible tri-state views and wildlife” for $599,000.
“Hunting opportunities abound as the property is home to several black bear, bobcats, squirrels, turkeys, and whitetail deer,” Omps writes. “This property is also located within the Marcellus and Utica Shale areas of WV. All owner’s mineral rights will convey with the property protecting the owner while also providing a great investment opportunity.”
A great investment opportunity.
Right here in Morgan County.
Frack for that natural gas.
Put the local waters at risk.
