ICYMI: Polis Praises Colorado Oil & Gas Industry

In case you missed it, U.S. Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis hasn’t always been consistent in his distaste for Colorado’s $32 billion oil & gas industry. As his campaign for governor heats up, Polis touts his 100% renewable energy plan more and more. Along with universal healthcare and free mandatory pre-k education, moving Colorado toward 100% renewables is the backbone of his campaign.

But just last summer, Polis was whistling a different tune at an event sponsored by the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry. At the time, the Denver Business Journal reported, “Polis showed an unusual inclination toward the oil and gas industry and said Colorado is ‘in a great place as a state’ when it comes to the energy industry.”

The reporting continues that Polis, “lauding [Colorado’s] robust energy sector,” argued that improving pipeline infrastructure would “increase production of energy.”

It appears as though Polis was “reading the room” and telling the audience what they wanted to hear. Candidate Polis should clarify his position with Colorado voters.
