Newsom turns to Tunnel backers for money

Postby mark poulson » Fri Apr 09, 2021 12:37 pm

This is from the Sacramento News and Review:

"Newsom turns to the almighty almond brokers

Two weeks ago, Newsom began sending out a form-letter to wealthy potential donors asking for support in stopping his recall. The letter was officially co-sponsored by Lynda and Stewart Resnick.

The Resnicks are billionaire almond and pistachio tycoons with vast land holdings across central and southern California. Their orchards are generally supplied by the state water project, a conveyance system that will extract even larger volumes of fresh water from the North Delta if the tunnel is built. Despite a litany of environmental concerns about the project, the Resnicks have been actively promoting it since at least 2014, according to an investigation by Mother Jones."

I think most of what Newsom has done for CA is good, including his handling of Covid, but this stinks to high heaven.

Here are a couple other things that stink - 1) Department of Motor Vehicles, 2) EDD aka Unemployment Office. He has had those monsters in his backyard for some time with absolutely zero improvements. The spotlight with COVID-19 allowed him to be in the news daily with the slick smile and slick hair. And then the French Laundry incident got the ball rolling...

You think most of what he has done is good? And i am sure you voted for him.

We need someone in the State House who cares as much for a health of the Delta as they care about the votes of the water users in the central valley.

"I think most of what Newsom has done for CA is good, including his handling of Covid."

Really? That's why he's being recalled. Whatever you gotta tell yourself for voting for that scum bag. Just wait until Resnick gives him a buttload load of cash to fight his recall. You better hope he gets recalled, cause if not, the Resnicks will have him in their pockets and than the Delta will really be done.

My biggest issue with Newscum is repealing the death penalty that millions voted for. Now that he’s ramping up the Delta Tunnels maybe I shouldn’t have signed the recall petition :mrgreen:

This post is about the Delta and it's water, not my politics. How about some replies on that?

Sounds to me like he’s trying to save his political *** via Delta water and the money of almond growers

Unfortunately Delta communities, which include Delta anglers have absolutely ZERO influence when competing with the huge money being put out by those wanting our water.

You would think that the Sierra Club, the Audubon Society, the State's marine biologists, and all the environmental groups like Restore the Delta who oppose the Tunnel, and it's disastrous effects on the Federally endangered salmon and all aquatic life in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and the Delta, would have some influence.

Money talks. Everything else is just everything else.....

Contributions to politicians should be illegal just like handing out bottles of water to voters waiting in line to vote.

Good luck!

Amen! Private finance of public office elections is just one dollar, one vote.
