So, I posted briefly about this in a locked post collecting various tidbits from the weekend, but I wanted to also put up a link on a public post... I have a modest fundraising goal for the Angelides campaign, as well as a page that lists the active letter-writing campaigns. Schwarzenegger is out raising buckets o' cash from the GOP machine. I think Phil Angelides is worth supporting.
Just to name one reason I think Phil's cool: he made his fortune as a real estate developer, and he was working on creating walkable, integrated, sustainable communities back in the '80s, before the issues of urban planning had any recognition at all in the mainstream of political or environmental discourse, let alone among developers. This is a guy who thinks seriously about the long-term impact of whatever he's doing, and, especially, learned to think many moves ahead of the guys in his business who were focused only on the bottom line for the current quarter.
