God bless the folks at Gusher Oilfield Services for answering the call to help people in need in House District 48!Chris and his team are doing a great job tonite filling up dump trucks and hauling off all the foul debris and gutted house waste from the yards of Sue Israel and Sharon Duvall. Sue said, “Yeah this is widow row…,” and Sharon smiled and said “yes it is!”
Thanks again to Gusher (who said they will stick around and help the other families on the street as well) and a shout out is due to Jaimie Baessler, President of Baessler Homes, for pointing me in the right direction to find help for these folks. And thanks again to Samaritans purse for the tens of thousands of dollars worth of work they did gutting both of these homes for these families.
Had a meeting this morning in Milliken with Governor Hickenlooper, Senator Scott Renfroe, Mayor Pro Tem Julie Cozad, Police Chief Jim Burack, and Trustees Jordan Jemiola Ted Chavez, Lois Ann Onorato, Reid Hobler, and Linda Beck. We discussed a lot of issues and concerns about the flood recovery in Milliken. We also took a tour and had a chance to meet and talk to the residents in the worst affected neighborhood, which was very helpful. The Governor emphasized his intent to expedite recovery by cutting through bureaucratic red tape where possible.
A Samaritan’s Purse team has been doing great work gutting out this flooded house. It was a great opportunity to talk to the volunteers , visit with the owner, and make a few phone calls to help expedite cleanup of that un-sanitary mountain of garbage dominating the front yard! There are a lot of homeowners who still need help and Samaritans Purse says that they still need volunteers.
The weekend is coming and might be a great opportunity for a lot of us to get our hands dirty and be a real blessing to one of your neighbors!
Journey Christian in Greeley is 1 place you can call/ internet search on if you would like to help. Literally people from all over the country were here working to help this widow get her home back.
Acknowledging that this was an unprecedented event, he felt that when there is awesome flooding upstream maybe notifications could be made quick for the folks downstream.
He was understandably frustrated that he was unaware of the potential degree of flooding that you see in the posted photo…. Yep, that’s the property in question.
I appreciate the feedback I’m receiving in my district.
During this unprecedented disaster, crews are on-site implementing containment and clean-up efforts. We need to work diligently to make sure all necessary resources are available for a full recovery and to get these folks back online as soon as possible.
As you know, oil and gas is the life blood for Weld County’s economic workforce. Right now, instead of rushing to judgement against this industry that is truly vital to the livelihood of all Coloradans, we need to stay focused on helping those affected for the sake of overall flood recovery.
We have yard signs available!
