- Intimidate Mayor Tillman and shut him up
- Drain the Town of DISH dry so they can’t afford legal fees.
In Calvin’s own words:
Many of you have told me to let them know if ever needed your help. Well, I could use your help at the moment. As you may have noticed I have become a lightening rod for personal attacks from our friends in the natural gas industry. The latest is that they are accusing me of not providing the information that they asked for in a public information request to the town of DISH. Please know that I completely cooperated with their request. The only thing that I questioned with the request was that they were asking for personal medical information from the citizens of DISH. Of course they only wished to use this information to vilify the very citizens that they are poisoning. So, I questioned the legality of their request, like any good mayor would do. However, from the latest letter they are threatening to file suit against the town and file a complaint with the attorney general. However, we have been more than cooperative with with those in the Texas Pipeline Association, who made this public information request. What they are trying to do is come of with frivolous allegations, to run up the legal fees for our community. As with everything that I have done thus far, I am only trying to protect the citizens of this community, and I will not back down. I have long ago quit worrying about myself, and now only worry about my family and my citizens. I would ask that each and every person who supports what I have done and what am doing, please call the following people and ask them to clean up their mess in the town of DISH, and to LEAVE US ALONE!!!! Please see attached threatening letter.
Patrick Nugent 512.478.2871,
Celina Romero 515.472.8800
I did place a call to Mr. Nugent’s office and received an icy cold reception from his assistant. Loose transcription of conversation follows:
First she said the letter was not from Nugent it was from the lawyers. I said Nugent’s name was on the letter and he hired the lawyers.
Then she said they did not request any medical records but that’s not exactly true.
“…any other documents or lab test results reflecting any public health concerns of any former or current resident … and any documents reflecting or concerning any communications, opinions or conclusions drawn by any health or other professional from the review of such questionnaires, surveys, lab tests or other health condition documents held by the Town of DISH.”
So, they aren’t asking only for the completed surveys. They are asking for anything health related, even if it’s personal test results that a citizen may have provided Calvin for his information. This is against HIPPA which is a FEDERAL law.
