      Thank you adding your voice to this critical issue from your home adjacent to the oil field. It is your stories and those living with oil and gas in your neighborhoods that need to be heard. This project is here for you!

      Thank you for sharing your story and welcoming me to your neighborhood. Your efforts are raising awareness about the unregulated fracking happening in L.A. and throughout CA that is endangering people’s lives.

    These Wells and Oil Fields were there when the houses were built and the current owners bought

    The Homeowners are killing the Resale Values NOT Fracking

    Those Pesky Cracks in Gless’ Driveway are caused by 1] Poor Soil Compaction by the Builder – 2] The Several Hundred Earth Tremors we get in LA every year

    Why do you try to make California more of a National Joke than it is already?
