-- New York— Former Mayor of Dish Texas, Calvin Tillman who is the Co-founder of ShaleTest.org will be the featured guest on The Organic View Radio Show (www.theorganicview.com)
with host, June Stoyer, on November 10, 2011 at 4p.m. In 2010, ShaleTest.org was founded by two gentleman, Tim Ruggiero and Calvin Tillman, who had been personally affected by natural gas drilling. ShaleTest.org which is a non-profit organization was created to collect environmental data and provide environmental testing to lower income families and neighborhoods that are affected by natural gas exploration. Calvin Tillman is the former mayor of the small town DISH, Texas and was featured in the film, Gasland by Josh Fox. Elected as mayor of DISH in May of 2007, Calvin served his second term as mayor, after serving a two year term as town commissioner of DISH. Due to DISH being the crossroads of many natural gas pipelines, the mayor was active in pursuing state legislation regarding the routing of natural gas pipelines as well as the powers that the pipeline companies have been given. A resolution was passed by the town of DISH regarding this subject and was passed by forty other towns with well over a million people represented. DISH, which has the smallest budget of any town in North Texas, commissioned an independent air quality study near a large natural gas compression station. This testing was among the first of its kind. The town of DISH is leading the cause for responsible drilling and pipelines in North Texas. Mayor Tillman serves on work groups with the members of the state legislators, regarding regulation of the natural gas industry, and is active with theTexas Oil and Gas Accountability Project. He has traveled around the United States speaking on responsible drilling. Mayor Tillman was recognized for his contribution by the Texas Progressive Alliance with the Gold Star Texan award for 2009. He has degrees from the Community College of the Air Force, and Concordia University of Texas, as well as being a licensed aircraft mechanic and pilot. He is married to his wife, Tiffiney, for eleven year and has two sons, ages four and seven.

“ShaleTest.org is providing a service to people that otherwise would not exist,” said June Stoyer, Executive Producer of the show. “Until natural gas development is regulated to protect our citizens and environment, there are very few resources to turn to for help.”
