Luke Thomas of Fog City Journal, San Francisco posted this short and sweet video interview with Green Party member and Supervisor, Ross Mirkarimi. In the video, he responds to PG&E's attack on a bill up for vote this Tuesday to do a feasibility study on Public Ownership of the Utilities in the cit by the Bay. He says that the PG&E flyer intends to instill fear in voters who would in turn apply pressure on supervisors to vote the study down. Mirkarimi cites that the nine municipalities who do have a publicly owned utility supply its customers with cheaper energy, something that a monopoly power company just might not want citizens to consider for very long.
