This talk was excellent! Too bad it was sold out and many citizens (and city council members) missed it. Lucky for us, Wes and Phil will be back for another talk, Jan 31, 6:30 p.m. Penrose Main Library, Carnegie Room. You don't want to miss this!
Mr. Russell needs to go back and re-read our Declaration of Independence:
"All men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
"To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
"Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it." (Add the word "Corporation" just after "Form of Government" and basically you've got ballot initiative #75!)
I e-mailed Diana and will cut-n-paste her reply:
"While I have not yet read then the Independent's article, I can tell you that the reporter asked if I had any objections or concerns lodge concerning the NexGen well - which I have not. His interview focused on NexGen. I did inform him concern was raised by many concerning Ultra and Hilcorp and their wells, along with concerns when the regulations were being considered."
So those who contact Ms. May must either be specific and state objections against specific companies: HillCorp, Ultra, NexGen, etc. For me it's just easier to state: "Ms. May, I OBJECT TO ALL OIL AND GAS DRILLING IN EL PASO COUNTY."
And Diana May, the county's oil and gas local government designee, says thus far: "I have not had one citizen or public objection — not one."
Wow, I am laughing very hard right now. Crying actually. I was one of many citizens who sent Ms. May numerous e-mails during 2013 to object very strongly to oil & gas drilling in El Paso County.
