Re: This cant be good.....
With the attention given the complaints, if there was any legitimacy to the charges he would be gone or so charged. He hasn't been.
Charges are one thing - validity of the charges another.
Point blank, there is not one agency in Pennsylvania that would not hire him to handle land and mineral issues in a heartbeat. Beyond the gas issues he is responsible for to the GC, he has been the catalyst for many other land issues and additions.
It is also very true that the no surface agreements the GC has with drillers runs back to Capouillez. As does the GC receiving the highest royalty rates of any government agency in the state. Nearly double what other agencies get.
He delivers consistently for the GC and sportsmen be it gas or mineral issues, land deals and land swaps and or donations.
This is an old story having begun some four or five years ago. My guess is the court case provided new fodder.
In the end, my guess is he will leave the GC and sportsmen will be for the worse of it.
Until then, the state will continue to investigate charges and take any required legal action if warranted. So far, it appears that has not been required.
Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.
