Carson Chamber of Commerce Connection
Carson residents were robbed of our voice and the protection of our moratorium.
The Carson Chamber of Commerce lead the charge and participated in the busing, feeding and instructing union members and the business community what to say at our public hearing. They have mailed out fraudulent claims of this project being an environmentally friendly natural gas production project. Carson Chamber of Commerce President John Wogan and Chairman Walter Neal have publicly stated they have not read the Draft Environmental Impact Report. It was also stated that the Carson Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the Oxy project.
