The people who are associated with Citizens Voices are giving of their time, energy and resources because they want their offspring to have a future in this area. Citizen Voices has not come out in support of fracking, but has come out in support of economic growth. That growth needs to be sustainable and come from a variety of sectors, e.g. services, retail, manufacturing and agriculture.
We’re losing our young people and thus the remaining population is aging. Add to that the folks who already have a sufficient income that are retiring here and it’s easy to see that we have a challenge before us.
Electing public officials that recognize that challenge and are willing to do something about it is a positive first step.
