Stop the Hypocrisy
Friday, April 11, 2008 from 10-11am Location: Las Positas College, Bldg. 2400, Lecture Hall 2420, 3000 Campus Hill Drive, Livermore, CA 94551
On its surface this sounds like a great event that sustainability and environmental advocates should applaud. In fact, Las Positas College is my old community college and one of the panelists is a well-respected Professor in the College of Conservation and Resource Studies at my other college, the University of California at Berkeley.
But...dig a little deeper and you'll see why we are holding our protest.
Before the event begins I am going to confront my elected representative to join me in signing a clean campaigns/clean air petition. I entered this race because I wanted to prevent candidates and legislators from accepting donations from companies that don't have more than 70% of their investments in Clean Energy. Before Assemblymember Mary Hayashi took office she was accepting donations from Chevron and Sempra Energy as well as some firms closely connected to appealing Federal and State Clean Air mandates. A look at her campaign filing for her re-election this year reveal donations from two of California's largest polluters.
And look who is looking to escape future responsibility for another Cosco/Busan incident in the Bay Area...
SAN FRANCISCO BAR PILOTS PAC
And this relationship all started after she had won the primary back in 2006.
Mary touts her 100% Pro-Environment record which is great until voters and activists realize that those votes are hollow. Take a look what she drives for her commute from the district to her Capitol Office. The efforts to author legislation that authorizes municipal governments to have more of a say in where and when energy companies open their doors for business came AFTER public outcry in my community and AFTER one new plant had already been built on the Hayward Shoreline!!!
If you have any questions or would like to help, please contact me at 925-914-9559 or email me at email@example.com
Thanks for your support and I hope you can join us to show Sacramento that their games and their hypocrisy ends in 08!
