Are anti fracking groups on the political fringe in Lafayette?



Vital for Colorado, an organization with deep pockets and ties to pro-oil and gas interests is purported to have dropped tens of thousands of dollars in the Erie election. If you take a look at their website, their framing of anti-frackers is unfortunately disrespectful and dismissive.

Case in point, this article.

Which brings me to my question, is the anti-fracking movement by citizens in this town attributable to out-of-town organizations stirring up trouble or citizens being led by politicians with anti-fracking agendas? Are citizens thinking for themselves and how widespread is the movement in Lafayette amongst regular citizens to keep fracking away from the town? Do any of you have a sense of that?


Here is one perspective from Cliff Willmeng who is running for Boulder County Commissioner.
