****************************************************************THIS THU May 8th: Stop Sunrise Powerlink Community Mobilization Meeting in Lakeside!
Greetings all! We are gearing up for a VERY important hearing by the CA Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on SDG&E's misbegotten Sunrise Powerlink project in Borrego
Springs on May 12th. A quorum of the 5-member Commission may very well be in
attendance, which is highly unusual for a public hearing -- the Commissioners (appointed by the Governor) generally don't stray far from CPUC HQs in San Francisco.
The local Sierra Club chapter is doing a fantastic job organizing and focusing the widespread grassroots opposition to this debacle for our county, and they've asked me to share some of my 20+ years' experience working for the CPUC (until I moved here several years ago)
TWO organizing meetings next week. One is On May 5th eve in Borrego Springs, which is pretty far afield for most of you :>) BUT, have no fear, we are also doing one on May 8th (eve) in Lakeside.
See the following from the Sierra Club for more info -- hope you can join us on May 8th eve in Lakeside, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, On May 12th in Borrego Springs to make our grassroots voices Loud and Clear for the Commissioners. See details on the May 12th hearings at http://www.sdsmartenergy.org/hearing.shtml
If you are interested in carpooling/caravanning to Borrego Springs on May 12th, let me know! Last year, for the State Parks Commission hearing on this project, several of us caravanned out to Borrego Springs together and displayed our handmade banners and signs on an RV, Prius and other vehicles. We joined several hundred at that hearing -- let's do it again!
THANK YOU for your consideration,
