Mora County Commissioner John P. Olivas, a staunch proponent of the county’s ban on hydraulic fracturing, lost his re-election bid in the Democratic primary election this week.

The fracking ban was one of many big issues facing the county, though, and may not have been a deciding factor in Olivas’ defeat.

    See this as but a temporary set back and anything but a defeat. Fracking must and will be banned nation-wide and Mora has been on the front lines of the battle to save our environment. And John is and has been an upfront foot soldier with a target on his back as he likes to say ! We are the 99% and must and will prevail ! The days of fossil fuel are numbered and renewables are here to stay. And thank you John for taking one on the chin in our fight !
