Very good news. Kevin de Leon did make some very good appointments.
From Annie Notthof on the NRDC Web Site:
“Congratulations to my friend and colleague Linda Escalante, NRDC’s Southern California Legislative Director, for being appointed to the California Coastal Commission by Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. Linda has been standing up for clean water, clean air and environmental justice for over a decade. As an alternate Commissioner, appointed by former CA Senate President pro Tem Kevin de Le??n, for the past year, she has been a standout bridge builder and has a clear vision of the next era of coastal protection.”
Commissioner Escalante replaces outgoing Commissioner Mark Vargas.
