Workers & Activists Demand BAAQMD Executives Be Prosecuted For Destroying Records & Illegally Retaliating Against Agency Whistleblowers
At a board meeting of the Bay Area Air Quality Control District on March 1, 2017, workers, environmentalists and whistleblowers demanded that there be a criminal investigation of the executives and lawyers of the Bay Area Air Quality Management l District for conspiring to bully, intimidate and terminate Documents Manager Michael Bachmann and document protection worker Sarah Steele. They discovered that their managers and executives were conspiring to destroy important documents that would allow companies like Chevron, Shell, Tesoro and Pacific Steel Casting. The destruction of these documents would allow the agency to lower fines and limit the liability of these corporations for illegally releasing toxic materials into the air.
This cover-up of criminal conspiracy to destroy documents and retaliate against Agency workers who blew the whistle requires an independent investigation by the California Attorney General Bacerra who has responsible for oversight of this regional agency.
