I'm tired of paying taxes to support worthy programs and then getting no accountability from the managers when something happens. If that much tax money is being paid out, someone has to explain why.
It's our money.

"we are not aware of any evidence to connect our operations to these events,” the company said in a statement."
"The U.S. Geological Survey placed the epicenter of the first earthquake at 2:26 a.m. almost directly below Hilcorp’s well pads."

Isn't this Europe's problem? If Crimea votes to secede and join the Russian Federation, do we really care? How does this affect us? People are being systematically starved and tortured in North Korea and every president since Truman has done nothing. Why would we care about this?

This area is full of lousy parents which probably accounts for the high infant mortality rate and every other thing that's wrong with the area. High incarceration rate? Check. High crime rate? Check. Low graduation levels? Check. Low levels of higher education? Check. High unemployment rate? Check. High failure of drug tests to get employed? Check.
We need better parents.

Remember how fracking was going to knock down unemployment levels? If this were true it would be worth a little shaking but I don't see it.

Gov Kasich has cut state spending in local communities and put more than a billion dollars into the state's rainy day fund. Well, for people in neighborhoods with abandoned houses it is pouring.
I'd like the governor to take some of our tax dollars and provide local communities with demolition grants to tear down these homes.
I'd also like the EPA to suspend regulations dealing with asbestos in these single family homes. The testing adds cost to the demo process and the small amount of asbestos in these homes shouldn't be a problem for the small amount of time it takes to bring down the home.

Enjoy the quarterly bill increases for "fuel surcharges". No matter if the price of diesel goes up, down or stays the same, your bill increases.

Keep him on for 6 months and relocate his office to the basement of Cushwa. Also, any perks not listed in his contract should be gone including reserved parking spaces, free meals and an experienced administrative assistant.
There's no reason this has to be a pleasant 6 months.
