I Am Very Disappointed


I am very disappointed in your paper. I always thought you supported what I and my friends supported, but now you endorse No on Measure P. I also thought you were smarter than that. Are the oil corporations giving you money to go for No? Do you realize how bad fracking is for our environment? Not only that, it is bad for we the people. Here in California we are in a bad drought condition, so bad that we here in Goleta have a list of what we cannot do with our water, and yet you endorse no on Measure P. If they frack here, which is what Measure P is trying to ban, they will take gallons of water we cannot lose and then add cancerous chemicals to that water, water that will be lost as drinking water. They will also ruin our lovely landscape. I always use to run to pick up your newspaper. Now I shall avoid and tell my friends to also. Shame on you. Shame on you.
