Milk Club Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Town Hall Tonight at LGBT Center

San Francisco’s Harvey Milk Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Democratic Club is hosting a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) Town Hall tonight at the LGBT Center on the corner of Market and Octavia. CCA is:

“a system adopted into law in the states of Massachusetts, Ohio, California, New Jersey and Rhode Island which allows cities and counties to aggregate the buying power of individual customerswithin a defined jurisdiction in order to secure alternative energy supply contracts. Currently, nearly 1 million Americans receive service from CCAs.”

The special guests will be Assembly Bill 117 (2002) author Carole Migden, District 5 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, District 9 Supervisor David Campos and San Francisco Bay Guardian Executive Editor Tim Redmond.

The whole shebang starts at 6:45 PM: 

STOP the PG$E Power GRAB!

PG&E is spending MILLIONS of YOUR dollars in this June’s election to prevent Local Control and Community Choice regarding electricity rates & renewable energy!

Confused about Community Choice Aggregation & SF Clean Energy Program?

That’s okay! Former State Senator Carole Migden, author of the Community Choice Aggregation legislation, and many others will be at this special Milk Club PAC Forum to help explain these issues and show you how to educate our communities and take DIRECT POLITICAL ACTION!

This event is OPEN to the PUBLIC!

    This was a wonderful event. A special thank you to the editor at sfcitizen for plugging it for the Milk Club’s Environmental Caucus and CleanenergySF and the No on PG&E’s Powergrab. Many thanks also to the distinguished panelists’ contributions to the discussion.
