This free re-election commercial brought to you by Charles Ashby and the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel.

Imagine how much better the economic recovery would be if we were drilling on the Roan right now. Imagine 4000 more drilling jobs and the impact on City, County and School District Budgets. Imagine the ancillary jobs that would exist.

One might expect a question from Ashby on this, instead we get the slobbering campaign ad on what a great job the Governor and GJEP are doing. What a laugh.

We deserve better from our local economic leaders, better from our Governor and better from our “Bi-Partisan” Newspaper.

Why doesn’t the unemployment figure quote the number of people who have fallen off unemployment benefits who couldn’t find jobs. And what ratio of the jobs created are government vs private. This figure can be manipulated by the government by increasing unnecessary positions which the tax payers support.

The article I see is about the Governor talking to a ‘packed crowd,’ so I am not sure what role you think a reporter should play in the community—but covering the event seems a pretty normal call to me. 

As for the 4,000 number, I think you have simply invented that out of thin air—if not, back up your claim.  Otherwise, suspicion confirmed.
