The River News-Herald in Rio Vista published an unflattering photo of Jerry Meral, the governor’s point man on the twin tunnels project, taken during a recent meeting in the Delta.
It’s the lead photo right now on the newspaper’s website.
Nor is the second photo associated with that story much better for Meral.
The caption on the first photo suggests he’s about to fall asleep. It fails to mention that Meral wasn’t obligated to be there; this was not a formal meeting of Bay Delta Conservation Plan officials, but rather was an informal gathering organized by tunnel opponents.
As Meral told the Central Valley Business Times, “I’m just a guest tonight.”
