“Western Colorado Congress was providing support through community organization and working with the organizer at that time is how I got involved. So I started attending some of their board meetings and I ultimately became a director at large with WCC. I could bring a little engineering to the table and business experience.
I think there’s many, many jobs that really need to be done. People in this oil and gas situation, people out in the gas patches have been disenfranchised completely. So much development has taken place on private land because basically a big oil company cannot bully the federal government that well. But they can bully the individual people. And pit them against one another and it’s a real operation. Unless the people know how to organize they’re just helpless to fight back.”
