Williams Petroleum has pulled another fast one, this time in Argyle.
Breaking News! – SOMEBODY HAS BEEN LIED TO
One community wins, another loses. Williams has moved the Flower Mound CCF/Stinky old tank farm to Argyle.
One man profits, and entire neighborhood is destroyed. The background on how Wayne Holt, Argyle Councilman and other Council members sold out their neighbors is HERE>

From an earlier post:
It seems several on the Council and the Mayor are royalty owners in several wells in the area. (Is that some kind of new requirement for mayor and council members in Texas? I’m just asking because Calvin Tillman is the only mayor I know who isn’t profiting off this Barnett Shale drilling.)
Naturally, Argyle citizens wanted to know why one council member, Wayne Holt, couldn’t put the injection well and compressor station on his property since it will service his wells.
“I have no further comments, so if you’re trying to trap me, you’re not going to trap me,” he said.
Ahm, they don’t have to try to trap you, Mr. Holt. YOU ARE TRAPPED! It’s a valid question.

Just when you think there could be no more surprises! What next???
Seems like Mr. Holt should resign and the Williams tank farm deal should be rejected due to an obvious conflict of interest.
Tim Ruggiero says
Politicians of any stripe should conduct themselves in a manner that avoids even the appearance of impropriety, much more an open and unapologetic conflict of interest. Formerly corrupt mayor Jody Smith….I mean former mayor, still corrupt….learned this lesson the hard way. Wayne Holt apparently doesn't get it, either.
Note to self: DO NOT elect a driller or driller-lover mayor!
