With today's bad news, the Sept. 8 workshop on green energy held by Congressman Jerry McNerney at Dublin's beautiful Shannon Community center was a bright beacon of hope. It was so encouraging to hear how much is going on in the Tri-Valley area with respect to going green. Venture capital, loan programs, assistance for ordinary companies to save money by greening, training/education for green jobs, as well as the expected efforts to promote renewable sources of energy were the order of the afternoon. The emphasis on innovation in the area of green energy renewed my belief that America is a can-do country.
McNerney's opponent for Congress reads the Declaration of independence on Tax Day in Pleasanton at a Tea Party event while McNerney fights for our future.
Jerry McNerney is definitely the right man for our time.
