Power Shutoff Coming This Weekend

Corte Madera residents: While we have been lucky up until this point, PG&E has just confirmed that Corte Madera will be included in their next Public Safety Power Shutoff. The shutoff event is expected to begin tomorrow between 1 and 5 pm and last more than 48 hours, with full countywide restoration not expected until later next week.

As such, it is in the Town's interest to do everything we can to help forestall the worst effects of climate change. That is why I voted to have the Town of Corte Madera sign onto a joint letter to Governor Newsom urging him to begin phasing out fossil fuel production in California.
