Fracking Opponents Dominate Discussion at Local Meeting
SANFORD — When Lynn Fass sold her horse farm in New Jersey several years ago, she wanted to get as far away from the drilling she partially blames for her property's depreciation as possible. Now, living in Chatham County, she's facing fracking once again.
Fass spoke at a Tuesday night meeting in which more than 50 people came to speak or listen. It was the first major public meeting about fracking in the area that hasn't been run by the N.C. Mining and Energy Commission. No members of the commission — several of whom live or work nearby — attended the forum.
