Corinth Citizens React to XTO’s Gas Drilling Plans (Videos)

On Saturday, volunteer group Corinth Cares collected resident signatures through petition booths. We spoke to many concerned citizens who expressed their opinion. ‘It’s going to impact all of our lives,’ said Gabriel J. Rodriguez, who has been living in the Cypress Pointe Estates neighborhood for two years. Many residents are not against drilling, but they are concerned about the gas drilling site’s proximity to their neighborhoods and worried about the safety of their children. Corinth resident Dwight Mikkelson worked in the oil and gas business for 20 years and says it’s a safety issue. ‘It’s in a neighborhood,’ he said. ‘You’re going to have a lot of noise, a lot of polution.’ Corinth citizen Tony Pressly sums it up: ‘Do it right.’

Here are videos of some Corinth residents we spoke to:
