Fire falling on CPS


So, outrage over CPS’s bass-ackward plan (read: CPS Must Die) for new nuke plants in Texas may have been slow to catch on, but it’s starting scorch a bit — in town and out.

Tomorrow morning Austin City Council member Jennifer Kim is holding a press conference at Austin City Hall urging San Antonio’s leaders to hit the “pause button” on a nuclear decision.

Joining her will be lifetime agitators (I use that term in its finest possible, tho mouth-mumbledy, meaning, as in: devices whose friction makes things clean again) from the Sustainable Energy and Economic Development (SEED) Coalition and the Lone Star Sierra Club.

San Anto’s Southwest Workers’ Union busted the daily's endorsement of nukes in an editorial in today’s Expressionless News.

Problem is, the troops are rallying after Mayor Hardberger came out publicly in favor of nukes last weekend. Irate residents have exactly one work day and a weekend to get heard and change his mind.

Of course, there are other Board members, too, though CPS only lists one contact for them all. (That’s emailing or calling (210) 353-2602.)

Find out who represents you, and if you’re feeling feisty, join the ruckus that is sure to ignite CPS’s Board of Trustees meeting Monday, October 29.
