LETTER: Let’s not add to state’s environmental woes

To the Editor:

I am so glad to see people around here waking up to the threats of fracking! I have seen a TV ad ... showing some of our legislators who have tried to push fracking in N.C. before the protective rules are in place, and I’ve seen announcements about some community activities. People here in Sanford need to know what their elected officials are trying to bring to our beautiful area.

Fracking can be environmentally destructive. We do not want to rush into this. Our poor state is already suffering extreme damage from improper controls on coal ash all over North Carolina. Let’s not add more pollutants to our air and water.
