Legislators side with business, not citizens

Dear Editor:

The WV elected Republican leaders of the Eastern Panhandle have chosen to support the Business interests of TransCanada and Mountaineer Gas instead of the citizens and property owners who elected them (Op-Ed from Eastern Panhandle Legislators, August 9). Their homework consists of talking to TransCanada and Mountaineer Gas about their safety record.

Well thanks I feel really secure. Does this Op-Ed take the place of a discussion with citizens? What makes me sad is not the CNBC article but the shortsidedness of these elected officials in thinking that gas is the wave of the future and that they can ignore what is happening to the lives of the people who elected them.
