Not Photoshopped

Yes, that’s Bill Jennings. I fear for the previous owner of that hat.

I saw Jennings tonight when I stopped by Restore the Delta’s letter-writing “party,” if that word can be applied to the complex 34,000-page Bay Delta Conservation Plan.

Attendees got a packet outlining Restore the Delta’s concerns with the project, from the environmental impacts of the twin tunnels to the manner in which operations would be managed.

Folks weren’t told exactly what to write, though they were given some pretty specific ideas. And they left with a stamped envelope all set to be mailed.

But they were also encouraged to dig through the plan independently, with a few words of encouragement from Jane Wagner-Tyack, a policy analyst with Restore the Delta:

“If something doesn’t make sense to you, don’t assume there’s something wrong with you,” she said. The documents, she added, are “very complicated, and we think they were intended to be that way.”
