9/7 SF Brownout: 70 Buildings Lose Power
by SF Voter
Tuesday Sep 7th, 2004 3:22 PM
At 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 7, 2004, 70 buildings lost power in the South of Market area, thanks to our private power system, courtesy Pacific Gas & Electric Company. Many businesses, employing hundreds of people, had to close for the day. Now is the hour for public power.

This never happens in the Financial District, Civic Center area or the Class A Hotel District of Nob Hill. There are now hundreds of businesses and apartments in the South of Market area, to whom PG&E refuses to deliver the same service.

The City's electric bus system did work however, at this time, because the City of San Francisco has public power for its buses, street lights and public buildings.

We are mandated per the 1913 Raker Act to have public power in San Francisco . However, the Democrat-Republicans routinely commit election fraud to deny us our legal mandate of public power, wihch they have in Palo Alto and Los Angeles, among many other cities.

We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
