Original post made on May 2, 2014

As they begin to discuss the PG6E tree removal for safety sake, RECALL that the PUC as well as all other agencies which investigated the San Bruno mammoth fire, THEY ALL CONCLUDED:

it was faulty seam wedling from day one and NOT TREE ANYTHING!!!!!

Total disregard, total failure to do due process, total lack of public interest then AS NOW, total disregard for any safety rules to protect the public with the resulting disaster.

NOW they want to cut down trees!!!! WHY???

Cut out the wasteful management which failed in their responsibility!!!!


For ALL THESE FAILURES, no retirement funds to them; no bonuses to them; no rewarding for failing to do the most demanding decision making job to protect the public.

If a retirement is still sought, then a minimal one as evidence that a public agency does care, does perform, does protect, will execute its ethical, moral(what is this word?) responsibility to the public.

All to point out that carelessness is not the domain of PG&E nor its badge of courage!!!!!

Personal gain at the total expense of the public is not what a publicly allowed agency is allowed to exist.

Now, lets hear from all the PG&E personnel as well as retirees

Surely you knew and know about failure then but maybe it was a total coverup then and perhaps now.

May good workers be rewarded well, and may they retire with total compensation but not at the expense of lack of due process in performing a highly responsible and at times a hidden resulting job.
