Reaction from energy industry representatives to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's speech Tuesday in Craig was largely positive. Appearing in downtown Craig, Romney said his administration would create an energy policy that utilizes all of America’s natural resources, including coal, natural gas and oil. It was a message Colorado Mining Association President Stuart Sanderson appreciated hearing. “I liked the points that he hammered away on (about) reaching our full potential through the development of natural resources, taking into account the struggles the local communities like Craig are experiencing as a result of the burden of national regulations, not to mention state regulations, although he certainly could speak considerably about those,” Sanderson said.
