Sierra Club Shilling for "Bastard Child" of Measure B
Did you consult with those left-wing tree huggers at the Sierra Club, regarding their renew support for the "Boss D'Arcy/IBEW Job Security Act", errr, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa "Solar Initative" ??
This is from an e-mail to Sierra Club members.
Chrissy, the Sierra Club's new LA organizer, and I want to thank you for helping to move LA beyond coal. Nearly 2,000 of you have spoken out for Mayor Villaraigosa's solar plan by signing a petition, emailing the mayor, and attending last month's Solar Workshops. The message from you has been clear -- let's stop talking about solar and start putting up some panels!
Unfortunately, some are trying to weaken Mayor Villaraigosa's resolve by saying we can't get off coal by 2020 as the mayor has pledged. It's very important that Mayor Villaraigosa hear from you today that we must get off coal by 2020. A critical step forward is a solar plan that creates jobs in Los Angeles and that has enough funding for each part of the plan to succeed. This is where you can make a difference.
Click here to make sure that our mayor fights for the Los Angeles Solar Plan. Demand solar energy now by calling Mayor Villaraigosa's office today.
We have made it easy to send a simple message: we want all parts of the Solar Plan implemented and funded in next year's budget.
Your voice is needed to make our city America's coal-free solar capital by 2020. Can we count on you to be a climate champion and call Mayor Villaraigosa's office today?
Thanks for all you do,
Bill Corcoran and Chrissy Scarborough Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Campaign Los Angeles, CAP.S.
The more phone calls that are made to the mayor's office this week, the better. Click here to forward this message to your friends. Thanks!
Memo to Bill and Chrissy,
Why does the Sierra Club continue to build up its "toxic waste" of discord with the average DWP rate payer by supporting projects that only benefit the exclusive few like Ari Swiller and Keith Brackpool, with current DWP General Manager S. David Freeman in a supporting role?
As your myopic membership cries "warming", the true warming is taking place as the likes of Swiller, Brackpool, Nahai, Gore, Clinton, and labor allies such as "Boss D'Arcy" rub their collective hands together, and create heat (and new found wealth), off the dubious science that is the theory of "Global Warming".
And locally, the likes of DWP Human Resources Director Susana Reyes, who doubles as the Los Angeles County Political Director for the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club, are kept busy writing job specs. for the likes of Wally Knox and "consultant" H. David Nahai, on our dime of course.

"Green Hypocrisy" from the Likes of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, DWP, Former Speaker Fabian Nunez, Cindy Montanez and the Sierra Club

Sierra Club loses its collective mind.
I personally think that John Muir is turning over in his grave... What do you other left-leaning folks think?
(Ummm... Hahn is in 15, not 14. Kind of indicates just how much the Sierra Club actually thought about their selections...)

Saturday morning open thread
Mayor Tony V. and a certain award winner held a "PHOTO OP LOVE IN" to tout the LAPD efforts during the May Day marches
"BIG SUNDAY" events all around the city. One will take time to plant a tree today with the official "IF YOU WILL" from Lisa Sarno.
After all there are over 900,000 trees needing a piece of ground in and around the city.
Will $4,000,000 dollars of Union dues and COPE money buy Mark Ridley-Thomas a seat on the Board of Supervisors?
$50,000,000, then $60,000,000, now try $120,000,000 for the cost of the Grand Avenue Civic Park according to the Downtown News.
And flashing back to the "GOOD O' DAYS", what a beautiful weekend it would be to sit at Lincoln Park with "D.Q.", paper bagging, swaying and doing the "ALARCON" with the chulitas to the sounds of Santana, Tierra, War, Los Lobos, Tower of Power, then ending the day with a rumble between Hazard and Clover........
Happy Cinco de Mayo Weekend!!
By the way, we found this little nugget of information in the Downtown Garment and Citizen.

STRANGE BEDFELLOWS AT SIERRA CLUB?: Word on the street says the LA Chapter felt more than a little pressure from the enviro group’s state HQ to endorse John Perez for the 46th District seat in the Assembly...Seems the LA chapter initially voted against endorsing any candidate for the Dems’ primary in June…Well-placed sources say the local’s political committee pushed for a second try at the behest of higher-ups and then strong-armed a nod for Perez, who happens to be a cousin of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa…Word has it that more than a few local members left the April 27 meeting grumbling about “machine politics.”
