Re: “Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan Sponsoring Legislation to Cut Police Ties with Immigration Enforcement

Separating from ICE as much as possible has
brought about powerful improvements in San
Francisco public safety, as well as community
integrity and solidarity.

I would strongly recommend that Oakland follow suit and go even further than San Francisco in separating itself from ICE.

Hi Darwin,

Thanks for this great article on clean energy progress.

One important correction:

San Francisco's Community Choice program, CleanPowerSF, is now scheduled to launch in January of 2016, just six months from now.

After over a decade of battling with corrupt SF mayors over starting the program, the newest mayor of San Francisco has finally become a supporter of the launch.

A key factor that got the mayor to stop delaying and get it in gear is that local community advocates got our San Francisco Local Agency Formation Commission (SF LAFCo) to complete a study which clearly shows that the City can gain upwards of 9,200 jobs over ten years, building out hundreds of megawatts of local clean energy and efficiency installations under CleanPowerSF.

Alameda can follow the same path with its own program and thereby sweep cynical PG&E manipulated political interference aside.

Readers can check out the SF LAFCo's CleanPowerSF local build-out report at:…
