Soaky getting ready to pickle Poseidon ratepayers and HB coast in brine.

Carlsbad Project Shows Poseidon is a Loser

“A recent but little-noticed study of the “financialistion” of Poseidon Resources’ giant ocean desalination plant in Carlsbad, an identical twin to its proposed Huntington Beach desalination project, reveals the company’s scheme to make profits for itself and investors on the backs of Orange County ratepayers.”

Stacy Taylor Evaded When Told of Her Own Agency’s Poseidon Property Tax Proposal

[In 2015], a member of the audience questioned [Poseidon representative] Sulnick about a survey mailed by Mesa Water asking her opinion of a ballot initiative to increase property taxes by $89 in order to pay for the desal plant.

Mesa’s public relations officer, Stacy Taylor, who was facilitating, was caught by surprise and so was Sulnick.

“Robert, you wouldn’t know anything about that,” Taylor said.

“I don’t know anything about it, but I was going to make up an answer,” Sulnick joked in return.

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 (in violation of Roberts Rules) when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Expelled from DPOC in October 2018 (in violation of Roberts Rules) for having endorsed Spitzer over Rackauckas -- which needed to be done. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. One of his daughters co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
