My name is __________. I am a constituent, and my zip code is _______. I am a member of Indivisible SF.
I’m calling to urge the [Senator or Assemblymember] to not bail out PG&E, and instead break up the utility giant. Utilities should be run for public good, not for profit. Please work with State Senator Jerry Hill on looking into breaking up PG&E. Thank you.
PG&E has failed to keep the residents of Northern California safe — from the San Bruno gas explosion to last year’s North Bay fire to the ongoing Camp Fire — all because they prioritize shareholder’s profit margins over public safety. PG&E has failed to maintain their equipment, resulting in hundreds of lives lost and homes destroyed. They should not be rewarded for making poor decisions over and over again by receiving a bailout.
