Months of frustration and outcry over a drilling rig near homes in the Magnolia Creek subdivision boiled over Tuesday night when the city council in a 6-2 vote denied several requested variances the rig operator made for a production permit.

A very unwise decision on the part of League City elected officials. House bill 40 clearly delegated decisions pertaining to minerals extraction to the State of Texas.

Vote Greg Bonnen OUT for supporting state control of drilling in local neighborhoods!!!

Las election Dr. Bonnen received 48,045 votes. His Democrat opponent John Phelps received 19,586. Talk about a snowball's chance in Hell to beat him. I bet Diane will cast ONE vote against Dr. Bonnen.
