is jose gurrola and i am tthe mayor of the city of arviv. we c can't t deny the fact tha living and being next to an oil and gas operatioions, that it emits emisissions, and that thoe emissisions can n cause harm t o healthth, and fossil fuel extraction and production and consumption is a big part of the pollution here in the valley and worldwide. agriculture is the base economy here in the city of arvin. now it's primarily a hispanic community. over 95%. it is a very young city. surprisingly, over 60% of the population is underer the age of 30. and d so, when you look at my age andnd u look k at other young peoplple n thee city council, you realize that we're acactually verery representative of the e city as a whohole. all riright. see u guys later. essentialally, what t the oil ad gas ordinance that we e adopted isis, it createtes setbtback, ad what that means i is no new oill develolopment can occur within 0 feet of sensitive uses--homes, schools, , parks, hosospitals. my position was not to stick it to oil workers or because i'm against the oil induststry. it's because e i want
limits. this all comes after mayor jose gurrola visited the state capitol to tatalk about an ideaea of eliminatining oil anad gas altogether. noerr: it hururts me to think tt ssomehow, someway, we hahave drn a linine in the s sand that says we'rere either g going to contie as a society based on renewable energy and ababandon all oil and gas s or we willll continue e wl and gas and d abandon the benefs ofof renewable. we'd truly y like to sit down ad speak with himim regarding his opinion,n, how he cacame by that opinion, but b by the sameme to, not just he but t everybody he representsts, everybody that elelected him and everybobody wo llives around him, stitill, evey daday, benefit from the e oil ad gas industry. gurrola: so, this is nelson court. my house is over there. alma's is over there. but over here, this is all nelson court. everybody on this side of the street was evacuated, and the oil operations thatat was the source of the g gas leak is this operation over here. you know, you have homes right here, and then you have within a couple hundred feet, you u have oil operations.
