San Diego Reader’s Don Bauder Assails CPUC’s Timothy Simon, Sempra Energy (TLR Note: One aspect not covered is money utilites pump to the various foundations i.e. CaliforniaALL, CCPF, and many others in South-Los Angeles, Long Beach)

  • Public utilities commissioner Timothy Simon (left), shown here with good friend, SDGE chief executive Jessie Knight, has cozy relationships with utilities.


Selected parts:

The state’s utilities commission is a “constructive partner” of Sempra, echoes Mark Barnett of the Morningstar analysis firm. “Improved California regulation allows the company to collect best-in-class returns.”


The commissioner who is handling San Diego Gas & Electric’s attempt to stiff consumers is Timothy Alan Simon, who was appointed in early 2007 by former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, for whom Simon had been an aide. He had been recommended for the commission by California political powerhouse Willie Brown. Simon had been in bankruptcy for four years before his nomination, according to a story in the Los Angeles Times. Former utilities commission president Loretta Lynch was one of several knowledgeable people questioning whether someone with obvious financial woes should be named a commissioner. State senator Christine Kehoe of San Diego challenged Simon’s knowledge of utility issues.


San Diego attorney Michael Aguirre got an anonymous tip from inside the commission that at one of the meals, Simon committed himself to permit San Diego Gas & Electric to fleece its customers for uninsured fire costs.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
