On Monday night, the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League voted overwhelmingly to support Dallas City Council member Angela Hunt in her effort to establish an open and transparent gas drilling task force to study the effects of shale gas drilling in Dallas.

Dallas Area Residents for Responsible Drilling (DARRD) representative, Raymond Crawford spoke before the league and presented information with photos and maps to those in attendance. The league then voted into endorsement of Hunt's efforts. An endorsement letter was sent to Dallas Mayor Dwaine Caraway.

Five Council members have signed on to put this task force on the Dallas City Council agenda for a
vote on April 6th. They are: Angela Hunt, Vonciel Hill, Carolyn Davis, Pauline Medrano, and Tennell Atkins. Districts 1 and 3 City  Council members Delia Jasso and Dave Neumann have not endorsed the effort.
