GarCo commissioners carry water for oil & gas

Again, our commissioners are in the pockets of the gas and oil companies. If you review who contributed the larger amounts of money to Commissioner Tom Jankovsky’s former campaign, you will see this is true.

Your article [about sage grouse] would be more aptly titled “Drill, baby, drill.” The American Stewards of Liberty” indeed. They are a Texas-based company that was established to protect individual property rights. Remember the quotation “Corporations are people (i.e., individuals), my friend.” There is little science involved there, but perhaps Dr. Ramey will come through for them. He says the polar bears are not endangered on the (nonexistent) ice.

Our commissioners should be ashamed of their misdirected conduct. Really, there should be an investigation into all of their questionable spending.
