Call out

We told you that you knew WHO Mary Kelleher was.  Last night she was speaking at City Council trying once again to protect her neighborhood. 

YOU want her protecting YOURS.

Read about it in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, then vote for her in the Tarrant Regional Water District election. 

She calls them as she sees them.  We need more politicians like her.

Council members voted 8-0, with Mayor Betsy Price absent, to send a proposed ordinance change back to the Zoning Commission. They raised questions about whether the ordinance would run afoul of state law, and whether it could have unintended consequences, such as pushing compressor stations into other neighborhoods.

The council stipulated that no applications for compressor stations will be accepted while the Zoning Commission reconsiders the case.

The commission approved the ordinance change and recommended it to the council two weeks ago.

Neighborhood organizer Mary Kelleher accused Councilman Danny Scarth, whose district includes her neighborhood and moved to send the case back, of "reluctance to support our neighborhood" and accused the gas industry of dragging the situation out.
