It’s obvious a man has been doing the right thing and as gubernatorial candidate threatens the ‘powers that be’ that he is required to file a Statement of No Action in regards to the industries he can bring to the state.
That man is me, John Lewis Mealer, http://jlmealer.com and below is a copy of that filed document (typo and all, but the formatting is lost).
