Bringing Jobs To Colorado
Posted July 12, 2013
In Colorado’s Weld County, oil and natural gas development is bringing well-paying jobs:
County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer says along with jobs, the oil and natural gas industry is investing in local communities:
Energy companies “invest back into our community. They support the schools, they support our historical society, they support the food bank, the cancer society here in Weld County. They’ve given money to United Way – I mean, the list just goes on how they invest back into the community. They truly think of it as their family.”
Safe and responsible development of oil and natural gas with hydraulic fracturing means jobs and a real stake in the community.
