It is with personal regret that I am resigning my position with the Wetzel County Action Group (WCAG). My involvement with the Wetzel County Emergency Ambulance Authority, Wetzel County EMS, Grandview Volunteer Fire Department and the Wetzel Coalition Against Drug Abuse conflicts with my membership in the WCAG. Some of these organizations receive funding from the natural gas development companies operating in Wetzel County. The mission of the WCAG is to support economic development for the county and state; and work to insure that economic development does not negatively impact the safety, economic interests, and quality of life of the Citizens of Wetzel County. Actions taken by the WCAG to further that mission are sometimes opposed by the natural gas development companies and leave the potential to influence the funding of the community based organizations.
