Group Launches TV Ad Promoting Ballot Measure for Local Control Over Fracking
The TV ad asks, “Would you want to live here? Want your kids to play here? Next to a fracking rig? Fracking can occur just 501 feet from businesses, playgrounds, even your home, and right now you and your neighbors can't stop it."
The TV ad says that with local control over oil and gas drilling, Coloradans will have the tools "to protect your neighborhood" from fracking. The TV ads will air on Denver cable.
