[img_assist|nid=27470|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=200|height=300]American’s For Prosperity California and a group of local Assembly District 75 voters called for Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher to do the job he was elected to do by showing up and voting, or go home, and allow someone else to serve this district. Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher has drawn attention for an extraordinary number of absences and “present” votes during important sessions including votes on pension reform that could have a direct impact on San Diego. Tuesday’s message came across loud and clear as constituents and AFP California called for Fletcher to step aside as an assemblyman to allow someone else to better serve the community.
Fish habitat or human habitat? The Department of Interior plans to destroy four dams on the Klamath River in Northern California so salmon can swim further than 180 miles up the river. But these dams provide water and flood protection to thousands of humans who also live along the river. Clean energy from these hydro dams supply electricity to 70,000 residents in the area. Despite a lack of scientific evidence that dam removal will help the fish, or any study on the human impact of dam removal, the DOI is pressing forward to have the dams destroyed. When their own scientist, Dr. Paul Houser, questions the science - he gets fired.
