This week, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is hosting public forums on the Jordan Cove Project.

They’re here to listen to our comments and concerns and, ultimately, decide if this project fills a need. I strongly urge you to help me show FERC how much we need this project and this investment.

It is vital for our community that this project becomes a reality; that it happens where so many other opportunities have not panned out.

The tax revenue in Klamath County alone will bring $2.8 million each year to our public schools, over $410,000 each year to local fire districts (which could pay for seven new firefighters) and over $1.3 million each year to county government and infrastructure.

We need this project. And this project needs us. Now is the time to publicly voice our support for Jordan Cove.

If you want to help Klamath Falls into a town that will thrive for decades to come, I hope you will join me in supporting the Jordan Cove project at this week’s FERC hearings.

Here in Klamath the hearing will be held this Thursday, June 27th at the Klamath County Fairgrounds in Building #1, Linman Hall from 1-7 p.m. Please join me in the supporters building for some free food and information, Exhibit Hall #2, first building to the right of Linman Hall.
