United Way Unites Community Around Natural Gas

This week in Zanesville,the United Way of Muskingum, Perry and Morgan Counties sponsored an open forum to discuss the ongoing development of the Utica Shale here in Ohio. Energy in Depth-Ohio took part in a panel discussion for this event  alongside  State Senator Troy Balderson (R-20) and Zanesville – Muskingum County Port Authority Executive Director Mike Jacoby.  The overwhelming number of citizens in attendance, 57 out of 63, supported natural gas development.

Ohioans, no matter what their zip code is, are seeking education about energy and natural resources development and as they learn more support for natural gas development is growing.

This is an Ohio issue for all Ohioans and it seems as though most Buckeye State residents are lining up to support this transformational opportunity underneath our feet.  We are embracing sustainability by producing energy here in Ohio.

After the event, Energy in Depth – Ohio sat down with the event organizer and the other two panelist to talk about the event and the issues that were raised.
