STCDA Members Take the Bus to Sacramento . . . Again


A bus full of Discovery Bay residents made the trip to Sacramento on May 25th to protest the Delta Stewardship Council’s draft amendment on “conveyance” (aka the Delta Tunnels) and to provide public comment. But none of them were able to do so besides the formal presentation by Michael Brodsky as part of the first panel. A public comment period was supposed to follow the agenda item.

Two panels were scheduled for an hour a piece. The panel discussions ran late and public comment didn’t start until nearly 4 p.m.

Regardless of why the schedule ran late, the result was a large group of disappointed attendees. The bus stayed an extra hour to attempt to allow Discovery Bay residents the opportunity to speak in public comment, but not one actually made it to the podium.

“They let everybody else speak but us,” several residents said simultaneously.

But while the Discovery Bay contingent was upset, they weren’t entirely dejected. As the group boarded the bus, they agreed to be back, and in greater numbers.
