WSPA President and CEO Catherine Reheis-Boyd has issued the following statement in response to Governor Newsom’s 2021 State of the State.
“We join Governor Newsom in thanking the many frontline and behind-the-scenes workers who have been the real heroes in our state’s efforts to fight COVID-19 and put our communities and economy back on track. These Californians have always been essential, and it is no surprise that our recovery is a result of their hard work, expertise and care.
“Among these heroes are the women and men of the oil and gas industry. As they do everyday, they worked through the pandemic to supply safe, reliable energy and produce the affordable fuels needed to deliver healthcare and the vaccines now being shipped throughout the state. The people of our industry will remain essential to the economic recovery of the West and the future of our communities for decades to come.”
