We, the undersigned, support Kern Citizens for Energy. We support local energy production conducted in an environmentally responsible manner in order to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, provide local jobs and increase revenues for Kern County schools, roads and public safety. The Kern County energy industry, specifically oil and gas, is a vital part of our local economy and we are committed to its continued success.
We thank the Kern County Board of Supervisors for their support of our local energy industry and for their approval of the recent oil & gas EIR. We look forward to the establishment of a sound and reasonable regulatory framework based on science, allowing the energy industry to continue operating safely and productively for the benefit of the citizens of Kern County and the state.
