Letter: Keep us safe from drilling

Governor Hickenlooper is a geologist, and he supports the stricter regulations Colorado has already imposed on the oil and gas industry.

The oil and gas companies have directional drilling for a reason. They can drill multiple wells in different directions for long distances to reduce the surface disturbance.

So what are the misleading claims about the 2,500-foot setback that will drive away oil and gas companies?

Keep our families, schools and neighborhoods safe from chemicals, fires, explosions and fumes from drilling.
