Press Release Roundup

By Erica C. Barnett October 14, 2009

In today's Press Release Roundup (actually yesterday's; things have been crazy at the Cola), we give Jean Godden an A, Robert Rosencrantz a C, and the Transportation Choices Coalition a B plus.

Addendum to the video: Mike O'Brien responded to Rosencrantz's allegation that he wanted to double electric rates, saying Rosencrantz "completely mischaracterized my position. He's distorting the record."

O'Brien says he has proposed raising electric rates as an incentive for people to use less electricity; however, he says, the second part of his proposal is to give every City Light ratepayer a flat refund at the end of the year. That would give ratepayers an incentive to conserve.
