To the Editor:
Local energy workers work hard to produce safe, affordable, and reliable energy for all Ventura County residents. We take tremendous pride in the work we do. But the proponents of Measures A and B are attacking local oil and gas production, and with it, thousands of good-paying local jobs. Measures A and B are a power grab by local politicians to grant themselves the power to shut down existing oil and gas production. A shutdown would jeopardize more than 2,000 jobs that support working families, including mine. Jobs are at stake, and local families can’t afford Measures A and B. Please take this into consideration and vote No this June.
Joe Benson,
