On Wednesday, May 10th, 13 moms and kids from the South Bay Mothers Out Front team delivered 171 postcards in favor of Community Choice Energy to the 10 San Jose City Councilmembers plus Mayor Sam Liccardo. These, combined with the 129 postcards they presented to the City Council in March, make a total 300 postcards from San Jose residents urging their Councilmembers to vote for CCE. The vote will be on May 16th. (It succeeded....)
