Concerned citizens are invited to the next regular meeting of the Mid-Cities Democrats, Thursday July 22, to hear from Democratic candidate for Railroad Commissioner Jeff Weems. Despite its archaic and confusing name, the Railroad Commission regulates oil and gas production. Mr. Weems will discuss his candidacy and current hot button issues including Barnett Shale natural gas drilling and its effects on surrounding communities.
Members and guests are encouraged to arrive at the Bedford Spring Creek Barbecue Restaurant, 1509 Airport Freeway, early at 6:30 p.m. to move through the buffet line. Click here for a map. The meeting will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m.
