A shout out and a great big THANK YOU to members of Battlement Concerned Citizens for the sacrifices they have made in the heroic effort to protect their community. Special thanks go to co-chairs Dave Devanney and Doug Saxton, and Bob Arrington for their exceptional research and tireless community organizing.

Thank you Leslie Robinson, Grand Valley Citizens Alliance chair, and Emily Hornback, Western Colorado Congress community organizer, and attorney Matt Sura for all your hard work and steadfast support for the residents of Battlement Mesa.

Your courage and persistent combined efforts have not only mobilized citizens across Colorado, but also spread awareness of the real impacts and the growing threat of residential drilling and fracking across the county.
