Rifle, CO

“My name is Leslie Robinson, and I live in Rifle, Colorado. I’ve lived here since 1975, so I was here for the oil shale boom and bust of the 1980’s, and for all the energy booms and busts since. I’m chair of the Grand Valley Citizens Alliance, a group that was formed in 1997 basically to help people deal with the impacts of oil and gas development. We’re also a part of Western Colorado Congress, a statewide group that’s working on the same issue. The reason I got involved in O&G issues is…well, everyone who lives in Rifle gets involved in it one way or the other. Whether it’s uranium, oil shale, or oil and gas, or mining, it seems like Rifle has always been in the center of the action, impacting our community and our individual lives in big ways.”
