Statement by Democratic Congressional Candidate Lange on Earthquake in Washington County

For immediate release:

"The 2.6 earthquake today near Barlow Township in Washington County is likely no natural occurrence or act of God" , said Werner Lange who is seeking the Democratic Party nomination in the 6th Congressional District of Ohio, "Dangerously close that area is one of the most intense fracking operations in the entire nation; and man-made earthquakes directly connected to fracking are on the rise. So must be the righteous anger of victimized residents"

"No one has a right to cause earthquakes."

"The time to impose a moratorium on fracking is now. The time for a full-scale independent investigation into this earthquake is now. The time to break our addiction to fossil fuels is now. And the time to remove all public officials (e.g. Johnson) from office who promoted fracking on public lands, like the Wayne National Forest, is now."
