I am very grateful that we are considering a rail for the Uintah Basin. I have lived here for 20 years and have seen the ups and downs of the oilfield and seen many friends and family experience the booms and busts. I am in support of the rail as I feel that in addition to increasing jobs through the oil industry, I am excited about the diversity in jobs that it will eventually bring in as it will connect us to the rest of the world, where we are currently cut off due to our wonderful location. This will allow us to still enjoy the country and home that we have and help to provide diversity so that we don't constantly lose our friends and loved ones. I am 100% in support of the rail and through my profession as a banker, I work with a majority of businesses here in the basin and most feel the same way as I do. Thanks for your time!!
