Talk with your neighbors about this issue

We want all members of our community to be aware of the potential for oil and gas extraction in our area, and about the risks of signing leases for oil/gas drilling without first learning of all the potential impacts.  Please talk with your neighbors about this.  Encourage them to join the Google group and the A.C.E. Facebook page.  Our community needs to have a full, open discussion about this issue; all perspectives are welcome and encouraged.
