Pat McKinney with his daughter Kara, (Police Officer at the city of Welch): “We had two candidates in this election and one of them said that she was going to shut down all the mining business in the country. The people of Welch live from the mining industry. So they did what they had to do to protect their jobs and their families. We love this place and we don’t want to leave. But if there are no mining jobs, there is nothing else to do up here”
