Kenny's Words of Wisdom


Edward Shuler, a longtime Downtown Rotarian and past president, recently passed away. Keep the family in your thoughts and prayers
An upstanding Bakersfield citizen kicked in the window at Terrio Physical Therapy and stole multiple items. Thankfully, Alert Disaster was
on the spot, for a pretty penny, within 24 hours for cleanup. For his trouble, Mr. Denison was fined $20 to help President Ken stay afloat during these COVID times
Pete Pankey's lovely wife Mona turned 70 this week. Congrats Mona!
Jay Roesnleib - Boy Scouts are honoring Jon and Phyllis Van Boening as the citizen of the year on November 5th. For more info, contact Jay
Charlie Moe - Boy Scouts are going to make baked potatoes available for delivery in lieu of the Kern County Fair. Contact Charlie for more info on how to place an order
Mike Willis - Wanted Jason Cater to be fined for not being here to do The Spoke when, in fact, he was there (Editor's Note: Late). Thanks Mike!
Kristen Watson spoke to the China Lake Rotary, which is struggling to get attendees to meet. Needless to say, Downtown Rotary is rocking it!

Missed a meeting? No problem!

Here are links to past Zoom meetings.


  • Suzanne Noble, Director of Production Operations at Western States Petroleum Association
  • Joe Ashley, Director of Regulatory and External Affairs at California Resources Corporation
The oil and gas industry contributed approximately $197 million in property tax revenue in Kern County during FY 18-19, Further, seven of the top ten taxpayers of property taxes in Kern County during 2018-2019 are from the oil and gas industry.
Kern County Oil and Gas by the numbers: 2.3 million acres - existing and potential drilling land, largest oil-producing county in California
  • Kern County produces 80% of the State's oil and natural gas and houses 78% of all wells
  • 14, 213 Kern County residents are directly employed by the oil and gas industry
In 2013, a CEQA study was done to cover oil drilling in Kern County and provide a streamlined process for getting new wells permitted. The County was sued and subsequently, the document is being revised to meet the requirements of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. At this time, the enhanced permitting process is on hold until the Environmental Impact Report is updated.
Kern Citizens for Energy (KCE) is a local coalition of leaders and County citizens who support local oil and gas industry. KCE exists to dispel misinformation surrounding the industry while educating the community on its important role in our daily lives.
