Well ConocoPhillips air pollution violations were bad, but not near the scale of the City of Farmington's air quality violations through their alliance PNM at the San Juan Power Plant.
Ok, I read Tommy Roberts entire web site and did not see anywhere where Tommy Roberts said anything about creating private JOBS for the Farmington Area, only More-Government-Jobs and more SPENDING for the City. He also wants to build 562 homes on his wifes land to increase family wealth and further eroding the all-time depressed private property home values in Farmington.
Tommy Roberts sounds just like Obama preaching his Progressive Socialist Agenda to benefit his progressive Demo friends at Tax-Payer expense.
VOTE - NO TO TOMMY ROBERTS AND SANDEL, TOO

The candidates are drunk with power and greed. That is their motivation to run for mayor. A bunch of spending freaks, with intentions to rob your wallet, and fill their own.

The pollution produced from NATURAL GAS POWERED compressors is less than a semi truck driving through the area. DENVER based EPA hippies getting a bit frisky.

Just another way to stick it to us through the producers. ConocoPhillips will pass all these nit picky fines onto us somehow.
They INSTALLED the equipment. Has any construction, ever, been on schedule?

Exactly!! Who gets the money from the fines? Damn sure ain't the people they are trying to protect! It just costs us more in the long run!!

Conoco says, "We're committed to being environmentally responsible and being a good neighbor," Really? What they're committed to is making a profit and if they can improve their bottom line by skirting around environmental regs., well... They are adept at courting their regulators and spouting bull. Somehow they even turn this situation into a lovefest with the EPA. Do we need them here? Without a doubt. The County would dry up and blow away without gas wells and gas lines. Do we have to swallow everything they say and do? I think not.

You sure know your stuff, good stuff. Maybe you should become a teacher of stuff, good stuff and get paid for all this good stuff you spread around, good stuff.
Because it mixes more uniformly in the ignition chamber, natural gas causes more complete combustion and fewer pollution emissions than diesel fuel. Though evidence is inconclusive, using natural gas could lead to fewer particulate and nitrogen oxide emissions, but it may increase "ultra-fine" particulate and greenhouse gas emissions.
