Jesse vs. Tim

Published by James O'Toole on .

 From Janice Crompton:

State Rep. Jesse White, D-Cecil, went on the attack today against fellow Democrat, state Sen. Tim Solobay, D-Canonsburg, for supporting the gas well drilling industry.
 
In a Facebook rant, White accused his counterpart in the Senate of working "nonstop behind closed doors with the gas industry to try and paint anyone demanding even the most basic accountability on drilling as practically un-American."

"People will be shocked to learn about the dirty work he does in the shadows for the gas industry to the detriment of so many of his constituents," White said.
 
White's comments were spawned by a Tribune Review report in which Solobay said he was satisfied with the 6-hour response time from crews from Texas who were called in by Chevron to fight their ongoing gas well blaze in Greene County.
 
White faces a tough reelection battle this year, with at least one opponent lining up to challenge his 46th Legislative District seat.
