In 1930, my greatgrandparents purchased a beautiful farm in Bradford County, PA, in a little hamlet called French Azilum. In the summer, we spent time there, resting, breathing in the fresh air, enjoying the wild flowers, the bright stars and planets on a clear moonlit night, and swimming in the Susquehanna River. If gas drilling is allowed to continue, Bradford County and all of Pennsylvania will be forever changed, ruined beyond repair.

How Taxpayers Help the Gas Industry: Free Services

The Bradford County Prothonotary Sally Vaughn shows a stack of paperwork she and her staff must attend to for the gas industry. Our tax dollars at work. The impact the gas industry has made on county services is substantial and puts an enormous burden on the prothonotary office. This stack of forms in the picture represents at least two weeks work by a county employee. Ms.Vaughan reported that a fulltime employee is needed in the front office almost continuously just to assist title searchers with computers and other machinery that often incur mechanical problems.
