Even Rep. Jerry Lewis Opposed To Green Path North

The Hi-Desert Star reports that Representative Jerry Lewis has raised his head long enough from his legal problems to announce his opposition to LADWP's outlandish plan to construct new power lines from DHS across Lucerne Valley to Hesperia.

The congressman's objections were made to Nick Patsaouras, president of LADWP, in the form of an official letter dated Feb. 6. While lauding the department for its commitment to renewable power, he denounced the planned route of the transmission lines through unspoiled desert when other corridors designated by the Bureau of Land Management are available.

"To disregard these carefully planned routes would be irresponsible of the department and disrespectful to Los Angeles’ neighbors in San Bernardino County," he wrote.

The author of this article, BTW, was Jutta Biggerstaff.
