Ovation Deserved For Town Board Member

To the Readers’ Forum:

Bravo! To Dave Ward, A Chautauqua town board member, who emphatically voiced his opposition to the passing of a moratorium on high volume, horizontal well hydrofracking in the town of Chautauqua, as it is currently written.

Most of the overflow crowd, comprised of many oil and gas industry employees and owners, gave him a well deserved standing ovation.

Although many people spoke for and against the moratorium, it was Dave’s statements that summed up the sentiment of the majority of those attending the meeting.

Well done!
