On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, qualified voters will take to the polls where they will have the opportunity to vote for the Mayor, the City Attorney, the City Controller and Councilmembers for Districts 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15. Also on the ballot will be five proposed measures referred to as Measures A, B, C, D, & E.
Of all the considerations on the ballot, it’s Measure B that is causing the most heat. Measure B is positioned as the “Green Energy and Good Jobs for Los Angeles Program” but critics claim that it falls far short of its promise to deliver Solar Energy to Los Angeles and, in fact, commits our city to a ill-conceived plan of dubious merit and minimal substance.
Join the WHWCNC Board as the Proponents and Opponents of Measure B debate the issues. One thing is certain, both sides agree that Solar Energy is a good thing and that a renewable energies portfolio is a commitment for the City of Los Angeles. How to make this a reality is what makes the Measure B debate so intense.
For more information including the wording of Measure B, the CLA Commissioned Analysis, the LADWP Memorandum of Understanding with the Neighborhood Councils, visit VoteNoMeasureB.com where you will find an archive of resources and information.
The WHWCNC Board will host the debate, discuss and consider an action and/or resolution at a Board meeting scheduled for Thursday, January 29, 2009 @ 6:30 pm. Check the calendar at WHCouncil.org for the agenda and for more details.
