Adina Levin is unafraid to take on the corporate scum in our town. Kelly Fergusson should ask her to run together with her for Council. We need people like her and Kelly in government working to protect the environment.

Finally, years after the GRCC made many thoughtful and pragmatic suggestions, the Council is setting a target for GHG reduction. Unfortunately, they keep making decisions that increase GHG emissions at the same time demands for limited water supply go up (Menlo Gateway, Facebook, El Camino-downtown plan for starters). So where are the concrete steps that will achieve the aggressive goal they just established? Where's the beef? Oh, right, they won't be in office when the hard decisions have to be made - to admit it won't be reached or that extreme measures will have to be taken.
