Homework is past due: Environmental Quality Report Card for San Diego

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 20, 2010

The San Diego News Network yesterday completed publication of a ten-part “blog” series analyzing the Environmental Quality Report Card that was published by a coalition of 11 San Diego environmental organizations last Wednesday Mar. 10. From part 10 of the series:

“The San Diego region faces a broad variety of environmental challenges. Residents here rely on the San Diego Mayor and City Council to create and enforce policies that enhance and protect the quality of the ocean we swim in, the water we drink, the energy we use, the air we breathe, the parks and open space we play in, and the wildlife that shares our region.”

“The report card quantitatively grades City officials on decisions related to environmental health in 2009. The results of the analysis are surprising and disturbing. Some officials – like Councilmembers Donna Frye and Todd Gloria – scored exceptionally well, while others scored poorly or failed in almost every category.”

“Mayor Jerry Sanders and a number of councilmembers received poor or mediocre grades.”
