Rather than charging a daily fee, based on the number of days, and which days of the week, the grounds would be used, a $1.00 fee will be charged per paid entry to the event.

0 Roving Reporter | "Portland Citizens United vs. Exxon-Saudi Arabia" Article and Photos by Jeanette Larson

Hearing about the Exxon-Saudi plant plans
Errol Summerlin, a retired attorney and member of Portland Citizens United, spoke to the Aransas County Democrats Club at their monthly meeting on June 22, 2017. Mr. Summerlin summarized the course that led up to the groups' petition to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) asking that they reject applications filed in April 2017 by Gulf Coast Growth Ventures. Gulf Coast Growth Ventures is working with Exxon and Saudi Basic Industries to build a plant near Portland and Gregory. Summerlin pointed out that the application, which runs 209 pages, asks for approval to emit over 1300 tons of carbon monoxide and additional tonnage of other pollutants and "volatile organic compounds." According to Summerlin, the plant would emit more than 6 million tons of greenhouse gases annually. Additionally, 70% of the company will be owned by the Saudi Arabian government.
