112 is bad for us all
By now you’ve heard about Proposition 112 on the next election ballot. This initiative is worded as a setback, but it is effectively a ban of continued levels of oil and gas production in Colorado.
I write this letter as a proud member of the Colorado oil and gas industry. There are many of us living throughout the Douglas County area. We spend our incomes at the businesses or government entities of our friends and neighbors. Our companies also pay millions in direct production and property taxes to the state and local governments.
We are proud to produce these products that benefit everyone in Colorado. Our economy depends on oil and gas for every consumer and business. Colorado oil and gas producers already comply with the toughest state regulations in the USA and emphasize safety and environment as highest priorities.
This proposition is also opposed by long list of politicians from both major parties, including current Gov. John Hickenlooper and both governor candidates Walker Stapleton and Jared Polis.
There will be no change in Colorado oil and gas demand if Proposition 112 is passed. There will be no change in CO2 emissions.
As your Douglas County neighbor, I urge you to vote no on Proposition 112 and continue to allow us all to enjoy the benefits of Colorado produced oil and gas.
