Colorado Concern 

June 23, 2014

 The Week in Review 
 

This morning the attached commercial went into circulation on both network and cable television across Colorado. 

 

Colorado Concern was proud to join Kelly Brough of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and Deidra Garcia of the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to voice our support for fracking and energy development.  We believe that we do not need to choose between our economy and our environment in the Centennial State.  Balanced, responsible and regulated energy extraction has been going on for decades.  Its benefits range from well-paying jobs to tax revenue for schools and local and state governments to lower energy costs.  It also continues to lead us on a path toward energy independence.  Thank you to our friends at Protecting Colorado's Environment, Economy, and Energy Independence, or Protect Colorado for short, for requesting our participation.  

                                                         

As you know, Colorado Concern is actively involved with Coloradans for Responsible Energy Development (CRED) in its efforts to educate Coloradans about energy development and its economic impact.  We are asking you to share this important message with your colleagues, employees and business associates from CRED.  Their interactive tools, including www.StudyFracking.com, provide important information and news about energy, the environment and the economic benefits of safe and responsible oil and gas development. 

 

By encouraging your team and your business associates to sign up for e-mails from CRED, they will receive the following:

  • Key facts about the energy industry's efforts to grow jobs in Colorado
  • Breaking news and an opportunity to provide feedback
  • Opportunities to get involved with upcoming events

We also encourage you to share the CRED links to Facebook, Twitterand LinkedIn.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at tamra@coloradoconcern.com, or the CRED staff directly at info@cred.org.

 

Warmly,

Tamra
