PG&E's greed backfires - Page 2

The defeat of Prop. 16 showed that unlimited corporate spending on a ballot initiative doesn't guarantee victory

If PG&E couldn't spend millions to defeat public power measures, the city would have far more options — and activists should be thinking about how a future campaign to take over the company's infrastructure might work.

The Board of Supervisors should pass a resolution endorsing Leno's bill, and the coalition that worked to defeat Prop. 16 should be working to get other cities and counties around the state to sign on.

PG&E's greed in putting Prop. 16 on the ballot is starting to backfire — and it can't happen too soon.
