Update on fracking meeting at Knox Presbyterian Church in Ladera Heights

An important annual meeting took place in the 54th Assembly District last night, to discuss fracking in the Inglewood Oil Field.  2UrbanGirls is quite sure the candidates:  Christopher Armenta, John Jake and Sebastian Ridley-Thomas will be in attendance to hear how the residents feel on this very important issue effecting their community.  *this story has been updated**
The Urbun Girl wasn’t able to attend but staff from the Morningside Park Chronicle attended and posted live on twitter using the hashtag #nofracking .
A couple of things stood out.  Sebastian Ridley-Thomas was a no show, and fracking is the single most important issue to the residents in the 54th district, something fellow candidate Chris Armenta knows very well.  Also of importance is the revelation that Freeport McMoran, new owners of previously owned PXP, was nominated as worst company in the world in 2012, by the Public Eye Awards (PEA).  In the words of the PEA, this is an event to shame the world’s top companies for irresponsible corporate behavior.  Who’s job is it in L.A. County to vet these companies before they are allowed to do business in our city?  Barber shops and taxi are more heavily scrutinized than energy companies, and that’s a problem.
