George Matthis: Don’t count on it

Don’t count on it

Regarding the June 27 Point of View by Charles Ritter, I agree with his assessment and applaud his recanting of the facts. But as a retired 33-year career veteran of DENR and current environmental activist, I can comfortably state that DENR staff will never have the latitude to accurately report to the public any future findings of the risks of fracking under the current administration, especially while the person who targeted DENR as a legislator (Mitch Gillespie) is the No. 2 man with the department.
