(PPH’s) are scheduled for the location. Customer Service 
Representatives from SDG&E® will be present at each hearing to assist 
with individual customer billing and service concerns. A CPUC

listen to and take all public comments on the formal record.  CPUC

quorum for any formal voting. This facility location is 
wheelchair-accessibl­e. (REMiNDER: Jon Monday or Mike Aguirre mentioned 
that SDGE wants to pass along rate increases to the CONSUMER due to 
claims SDGE had to pay from fires that their own equipment perhaps 
sparked.   This is perhaps, a bit insulting, if true.   Perhaps the 
monies coould be better "clawed back" from Sempra or Edison or SDG&E 
corporate officers, since their interests are better aligned with 
ratepayers.

Dinner "   MEET JOURNALIST  CHRIS MOONEY and Author of  THE REPUBLICAN 
WAR ON SCIENCE will be our KEYNOTE Speaker at our 32nd Annual Roosevelt 
Dinner. "  Chris Mooney hit the nail on the head when he wrote: "It 
often seems there are so many factually wrong claims on the political 
right that those who make them live in a different reality. So here's 
an idea: Maybe they actually do."  In his newest book, "The Republican 
Brain," journalist Mooney explores brain scans, polls, and psychology 
experiments that explain why conservatives oppose new ideas and refuse 
to let facts affect their beliefs.  We are pleased to welcome him to 
San Diego in just over two weeks as the keynote speaker for this year's 
Roosevelt Dinner! RSVP today to reserve your seat: 
 www.sddemocrats.org­/dinner  We'll also be honoring individuals and 
organizations who have made tremendous contributions to our Democratic 
community, including Mickey Foster (Making a Difference Award); Lori 
Kern-Greenberg (Volunteer of the Year); Phil Hanneman (Leadership 
Award); the Pacific Beach Democratic Club (Club of the Year); 
Assemblymember Ben Hueso (Legislator of the Year); and Eric Banks, 
Marilee McLean, Carlos Marquez, and the American Federation of Teachers 
Local 1931 (Chair's Awards).  The early-bird rate of $95 per ticket is 
only available for a few more days, so be sure to sign up now. As the 
largest annual fundraiser to help our County Party elect candidates up 
and down the ticket in 2012, the Roosevelt Dinner is a great way for 
you to support Democrats while enjoying a memorable evening among 
friends.  For more information, feel free to call our office at (858)
