March 14, 2011 (San Diego) --I applaud Supervisor Diane Jacob's endeavors to keep the Powerlink out of her district because of concerns for the environment.
However, I can't for the life of me understand why she would support the Gregory Canyon dump in the North County, where the canyon is also home to eagles and various endangered species, where it will desecrate Native American sacred sites, and where money seems to rule.
The Department of Environmental Health of the County always seems to bend over backwards to please the developers and their monied out of town and out of state investors.
If Supervisor Jacob has a good reason (other than "the people voted for it") for supporting the Gregory Canyon dump, I wish she'd let me know.
