Concerned Citizens of Wagon Mound and Mora County Educational Forum

The Concerned Citizens of Wagon Mound and Mora County will be having an educational forum regarding the issue of oil and gas development on Tuesday, May 11th, 6:30 P.M at the Wagon Mound school auditorium.

Their presenter is Mr. Gilbert Armenta, a San Juan County rancher. He will be speaking about the impacts of natural gas development and the difficulty of living with it in daily life. Having seen Mr. Armenta present and speaking to him and his wife, I can tell you he is a very moving speaker. I am extremely grateful to people like Mr. Armenta for making the effort to talk to our community. He is a painful example of what it the oil and gas industry is really like when they set up shop on your land. There is nothing like the truth of experience to clean off the whitewash.
