I think Mr. Hill makes his stance on gas drilling pretty clear: "I believe that we should use our God given resources, like oil and gas resources in this county and our city."
That's great logic, isn't it? God put the gas in the ground so He must want us to take it out. No need to worry about other factors, such as environmental ones, or whether it's good overall for the community. After all, God created benzene, too, so it can't be that bad.
Also, if the city leases their minerals we may be able to lower the city property tax rate by a fraction of a cent. That's way more important than people's health anyway.
